In order to ensure a safe and happy environment for children in need, it is essential that the support they receive is as effective and timely as possible. It is for this reason that the interventions and support provided by practitioners working in the field is heavily governed by legislation and guidance. Children in Need of Support provides students and practitioners with a clear and practical account of the key legislation and guidance. It begins by outlining the legal framework as it applies to working with children in need, along with the duties, powers and responsibilities of the practitioners supporting them. Linking the theory to practice scenarios, it considers the different assessment and support needs of specific groups of children, including: separated, unaccompanied and refugee children, children with harmful sexual behaviour and children with disabilities. The text is supported by a range of innovative features and boxed information to aid learning and stimulate reflection: - Key Case Analysis boxes summarize the details of particular legal cases and outline the implications for social work practice - Practice Focus boxes apply legal principles and processes to practice through the use of social work scenarios - On-The-Spot Questions reinforce understanding and encourage critical reflection

This book provides a comprehensive examination of the legal regulation of the provision of healthcare to young children in England and Wales. A critical analysis is given on the law governing the provision of healthcare to young and dependent children identifying an understanding of the child as vulnerable and in need of protection, including from his or her own parents. The argument is made for a conceptual framework of relational responsibilities which would ensure that consideration is given to the needs of the child as an individual, to the experiences of parents gained as they care for their child and that the wider context, such as attitudes towards disability, public health issues or the support and resources available, is examined. This book makes an important contribution to understanding the law regulating the provision of healthcare to young and dependent children and to the development of a discourse of responsibility.

Social Work in a Global Context engages with, and critically explores, key issues that inform social work practice around the world. Social work can take many forms, and is differently understood in different parts of the world. However, at base, it can be seen as a profession which strives to advance the causes of the vulnerable and marginalised with the aim of promoting social justice, equality, and human rights. This text provides examples of social work in a wide range of countries, informing our understanding of what social work is. It looks at how practice changes or stays the same, and at the impact of policy, as experienced by service users as well as by practitioners working in challenging circumstances. It also meaningfully reflects on the strengths and challenges that are enabled by diversity. Divided into four parts, this wide-ranging text discusses: - what social work means in four different countries -some examples of the impact social and political context can have on social work practice - how social workers see and work with the vulnerable - the future for social work, from disaster work to involving service users. Social Work in a Global Context is the first truly international book for all those interested in comparative and cross-cultural understandings of social work.
