Children develop agency by interacting with their parents and families; if parental agency proves insufficient, child welfare workers must fill in the gaps. In this holistic study of the development of agency, Carolus van Nijnatten engages social, psychological, and developmental perspectives while maintaining a special focus on child welfare structures and the role of the social worker. A significant contribution to current debates about child welfare and protection, Children’s Agency, Children’s Welfare will be essential reading for specialists in social work, childhood studies, and social policy.

About the Author:

Carolus van Nijnatten is a developmental psychologist and professor of the social studies of child welfare at the University of Utrecht. 

Review:

Children's agency, children's welfare is an important and challenging book. It demonstrates the importance of the nature and quality of interactions for influencing child development and that these are central issues for the way child welfare workers and agencies operate and are organised. Nigel Parton, NSPCC Professor in Applied Childhood Studies, University of Huddersfield, England

This book offers a lively and well-developed analysis of the multi-level concept of agency in child welfare, and explores in an original manner the importance of dialogical and narrative approaches in social work practices. This is useful reading for anyone involved in these practices. Kirsi Juhila, Professor of Social Work, University of Tampere, Finland

This is a wide-ranging exploration of child welfare, based in psychology but drawing ideas from across the human sciences. It provides a strong argument for the centrality of dialogic, narrative and language approaches to understanding children, families and their interactions with child welfare professionals. Christopher Hall, School of Medicine and Health and Wolfson Research Institute, Durham University

“This book offers a lively and well-developed analysis of the multilevel concept of agency in child welfare and explores in an original manner the importance of dialogical and narrative approaches in social work practices. This is useful reading for anyone involved in these practices.”   (Kirsi Juhila, University of Tampere, Finland)

"A very useful framework for critical and innovative analysis of policy and practice. Moreover, it is a good read: interesting, original, clear and well structured."

(International Journal of Social Welfare)
