'I would recommend this book to students both on undergraduate and post-graduate courses in Health, Education or Social Work and to practitioners and managers in Children's Services. The strengths of the book are that it is accessible but it offers an excellent starting point for anyone researching any area relating to children and families in the community.' - The Higher Education Academy Subject Centre for Education
