Direct practice with children and young people has moved to centre stage in policy and practice within Children' Services. It is now recognised that if they are to make a real difference to their lives, practitioners must be able to engage, relate to, and communicate with children and young people themselves. Written by an experienced practitioner and educator, this timely textbook equips student social workers and other practitioners wishing to update their learning with the knowledge and capabilities needed for effective practice. Key skills, such as how to form relationships, understand non-verbal communication, break bad news, and communicate within family groupings, are explored within the context of professional roles and tasks such as assessment, involving young people in decision-making and planning, and work with children in care. The book uses a problem-based learning approach underpinned by theoretical frameworks, research findings and the voices of children and young people. Practice vignettes encourage readers to consider how these skills can be used within a range of practice contexts, tailoring communication to children and young people's specific needs and experiences.
