Across 30 chapters, a team of experienced teachers and practitioners introduce the fundamental professional issues concerning children, young people and their families in the 21st century.

Key policies and agendas: introduces the policies, agendas and government guidance that serve as the foundation of children's services

Contemporary issues: tackles complex topics such as antidiscriminatory and ethical practice, child protection and safeguarding

Reflective practice: offers reflective activities throughout to help you engage, understand and apply knowledge in practice

Diversity: helps you understand the variety of backgrounds and experiences children may have – from sociological, psychological, educational and cultural perspectives

Integrative working: focuses holistically on the child, rather than on specific professional approaches, offering insight into important themes in all areas of work with children.

This text offers a broad basis from which to launch into any area of work or study involving children, including early years, social work, education, social policy, nursing, sociology and childhood studies. It is great introductory reading for foundation and undergraduate degree level students.
