Reviews

(Review for the 3 Volume Set)'Designed to be used by practitioners in their work with complex people and their families and carers, these excellent workbooks provide some of the best materials I have seen for experienced and not so experienced practitioners. They should be on the shelves of every department working with vulnerable young people.'

-- Rostrum
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
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
