Product description

Product Description

‘Tackling Childhood Neglect’ is a call to action for social workers, their managers and the entire range of professionals who work with physically and emotionally neglected children. This practical guide takes workers through a step by step process from techniques for building rapport and understanding the family´s model of the world to reaching agreement with parents on SMART child centered outcomes. The book helps workers to recognise the symptoms of neglect, understand the reasons behind neglectful parenting and most importantly the immediate and longer term consequences of neglect. The focus is on the reality of life for neglected children and the need for immediate action to improve their day to day circumstances. The challenges for workers and the importance of objective supervision and strong managerial governance, at all stages from screening referrals to the review of cases on the child protection register, are also emphasised.

Practical exercises at the end of each chapter encourage workers to focus on the needs of specific children and demonstrate how the use of pertinent questions makes it easier to take decisive action. These questions assist in taking a fresh look at the needs of children in families where no meaningful progress has been made despite years of family support services.

“This is a fantastic resource for social workers and others in relation to helping them think through the issues surrounding neglect. Lynne Peyton has used all her years of experience to write a useful, engaging and important book which should be used by any social worker carrying out an assessment of a family. It is both thought provoking and pertinent and I thoroughly recommend it!”

Deirdre Mahon
Assistant Director of Safeguarding Children

This professionals' guide has been compiled by Lynne Peyton, a leader in her field and at the cutting edge of empowering professionals to provide the best services that they can to children and families. The book is written in such an accessible way and is easy to dip in and out off . The layout of the sections is very helpful and key points are highlighted.
I was really impressed with the level of practical information the book contained. I liked the statement about 'phone calls only being for setting up appointments’ with families.
I will ensure we use this ebook in our work with children and families. A great achievement and a valuable resource!
