"This book is a 'must' for all child care practitioners and guardians ad litem. It provides the knowledge base needed for working with children and families and should be compulsory reading on training courses."
Margaret Adcock, Social Work Consultant.
Separation, loss, grief and change are expected parts of the experience of children in placement. How do those charged with the responsibility of planning for these children address their needs?
A Child's Journey Through Placement contains the theoretical knowledge base and skills necessary for understanding, working with, and planning for children and their families. The author, Dr Vera Fahlberg, builds on her considerable experience and practice wisdom and presents informative and comprehensive sections on attachment, separation, child development and helping children move.
Clear, informative and full of practical ideas and case examples, A Child's Journey Through Placement is an essential reference book.
This book is a recommended text and invaluable for students and practitioner alike. No social worker working with children and families should be without a copy.
