Children’s Services – Working Together
Author: Malcolm Hill
Publisher: Pearson Education
Divided into four sections, this book’s 26 chapters offer an analytical overview of children’s development and the impact professional teamwork can have on the provision of services for children.
The introduction provides an in-depth insight into descriptions and theories of childhood behaviours and the relevant policies and legislation for their protection. Each chapter addresses a different topic, with a wide range of areas covered.
The chapters end with a conclusion, implications for practice and an exercise. These help in applying the theories to practice.
The comprehensive contents pages enables easy navigation. There is a vast amount of text, exposing a lack of diagrams or illustrations to help break it up. The content is good, but sometimes repetitive.
Overall, this book is highly effective in examining the wider context in which children’s services exist and the multi-dimensional manner of working with children individually and in groups. It will encourage professionals to explore and enhance their practice to improve all-round collaboration.
