The Children Act 1989, together with the Guidance and Regulations, makes constant reference to co-operation and consultation. These are seen as embodying different aspects of the principle of partnership. However, as many of the contributions to this book clearly show, the notion of partnership in the daily practice of child welfare and protection is elusive.

As well as describing the various situations and settings in which the concept of partnership appears, this book takes an analytical and critical view. It analyses how the partnership principle is reflected in the law. It critically examines partnership between agencies, between child welfare professionals and children, and, finally, between child welfare professionals and parents. It brings together contributors from a number of different disciplines and partnership is analysed from a variety of theoretical and professional perspectives, including law, social work, psychoanalytic theory and social theory.

Review:

`all readers with an interest in the recent developments in child welfare will be challenged and interested by at least some of its contents ... should certainly be welcomed for taking the important idea of `partnership' seriously and providing some good material to help us explore and develop the idea in more detail.' Author: Child and Family Social Work

`There are no weak chapters; each one is written with conviction and verve. This is an excellent book. It is a nice example of the conceptual insights that are generated when different academic disciplines tackle a shared concern.' Author: Journal of Social Work Practice

`This is a valuable collection of essays ... [the book] comes from Brunel University's Centre for the Study of Law, the Child and the Family and it demonstrates the high standard of scholarship which that Centre is producing ... The book is of value to law and social work students, and to any practitioner seeking a scholarly and theoretical treatment of the subject.' Author: Family Law Journal

`...'handy', something for the teacher, or psychologist to dip into ...' Author: British Journal of Educational Psychology
