About this book

This book brings together psychological and psychotherapeutic contributions in clinical practice with at-risk children and their families. Chapters by experts working in a range of edge-of-care settings give an essential account of real-world clinical challenges and dilemmas; whilst drawing on relevant theory and the growing evidence base for edge of care work with children and families. This title will be of interest to both clinical and social work practitioners, those commissioning and developing best practice in edge of care services, scholars and students of Clinical Psychology, Systemic Psychotherapy and related disciplines.

Reviews

“This book … combines progressive research and practice designed to revolutionise how we support children and families, either through preventing child care proceedings, or by helping them navigate a complex child protection process. The authors' collective experience, underpinned by compassion and a clear understanding of the impacts of intergenerational trauma on development and family functioning, leads the way to a more compassionate, integrative and individualised approach to helping those children and families who live on the edge.” (Arlene Vetere, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Surrey, UK)

“This book provides a superb overview of some of the most recent advances in knowledge across the fields of research, theory and applied clinical practice with children at the edge of care. It is compulsive reading and should be a core text for all practitioners working with this clinical group.” (Jane Barlow, Professor of Evidence-Based Intervention and Policy Evaluation, University of Oxford, UK)
