About this title:

Synopsis:

The well-being of children represents a challenge not yet fully confronted and The Handbook of Child Well-being supplies its readers with a thorough overview of the complexities and implications regarding the scientific and practical pursuit of children's well-being. The handbook addresses the concept of well-being through an in-depth analysis of the perspectives and vocabularies of various disciplines such as, philosophy, theology, psychology  and sociology. It covers important issues in child well-being and  the problems of the general politics of well-being as well as the implementation of interventional programs and measures. In addition the handbook deals with the methods of measuring well-being for a scientifically grounded understanding and also for policy-making. The interdisciplinary set up of the handbook makes it a unique work that offers readers from a vast scope of child-related disciplines and professions a profound overview of the complexities and implications of the scientific and practical pursuit of children’s well-being.

About the Author: Dr. Asher Ben-Arieh focuses his research on the nature of children’s well-being and the factors affecting it, the methodology of social indicators, and the use of indicators of children’s well-being in the process of making and implementing public policy regarding children. The theoretical approach guiding his work is based on the concepts of the power of information, childhood as a sociological stage in itself, and children’s rights. As a member of the team of researchers from Clemson University, Duke University, and the University of Chicago, Dr. Ben- Arieh is examining the effects of Strong Communities in building and strengthening norms of mutual assistance and of collective responsibility for family support. Also, as the Israeli representative in the EU’s COST A/19 working group on child welfare, Dr. Ben-Arieh is both learning from and contributing to the intergenerational perspective framing COST’s work, particularly in relation to children’s roles in advancing their own status.
