A clear and practical workbook showing the importance of encouraging resilience in pre-school children who live in challenging circumstances
Brigid Daniel is a senior lecturer in social work in the Department of Applied Social Science at the University of Stirling. She has worked with children and families in local authority social work and at the Centre for Child Care and Protection Studies at Dundee University. Sally Wassell is an independent consultant and trainer in childcare and an associate lecturer at Dundee University. Together with Robbie Gilligan, the two wrote Child Development for Child Care and Protection Workers, also published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
The workbooks are easy to read and use the same format in each
volume. They explain resilience theory and encourage practitioners
to place intervention and assessment within ecological framework.
This entails considering what resources might be available to the
child at each of three levels: child, family relations and wider
community... The workbooks would be invaluable to
parents/carers/foster families and those practitioners who have
little child development knowledge. For students and occupational
therapists who are new to working with children, they would be a
very useful adjunct to learning, to the advanced practitioner they
would be a refreshing revisit to child development in relation to
occupational lifestyle. -- Napot Journal
(Review for the 3 Volume Set)'These three workbooks are a welcome and important addition to the tools available to childcare social workers, foster carers, residential workers and others involved in assessment and direct work with children and young people. Each book stands alone and could be used to inform and illuminate work with a particular child. Taken as a set they are a rich and lasting resource.'-- Adoption & Fostering
