About the book

"A must for all childcare practitioners. it should be compulsory reading on training courses."
Margaret Adcock, Social Work Consultant.

Clear, informative and full of practical ideas and case examples, A Child's Journey Through Placement is an essential reference and resource book for professionals working with children in the care system. Now a core text in some universities, it contains chapters on attachment and bonding, child development, separation and loss, minimising the trauma of moves and direct work with children.

It contains the theoretical knowledge base and skills necessary for understanding, working with, and planning for children and their families. The author, building on her considerable experience and practice wisdom, presents informative and comprehensive sections on attachment, separation, child development and helping children move on.
