CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Safeguarding Children and Young People is essential reading for all
practitioners involved with 0-18 year olds anywhere within the UK and for
students learning about this crucial area of good practice. This fully revised
third edition of Jennie Lindon's best-selling Child Protection book covers
recent developments in legislation and guidance. The book takes a
well-considered approach to daily practice for professionals taking
responsibility for children and young people in early years provision, schools,
out-of-school settings, play and leisure activities. Topics covered include:
legislation and key guidance that affect England and Wales, Scotland, and
Northern Island; continuity for good practice in safeguarding across the UK,
including working well with other professionals and partnership with families;
the role and responsibilities for practitioners who spend time with children
and young people in the wide range of provision; important developments for
safeguarding, such as safety on the internet and increased awareness of the
impact of domestic violence; a balanced approach to dilemmas, such as
practitioners' anxiety over physical contact with children and young people,
and how equality practice needs to work alongside effective child protection.
Safeguarding Children and Young People provides exploration of these complex
issues in the context of a full 0-18 years age range, supporting recent
developments in National Occupational Standards. Jennie Lindon is an
experienced trainer and consultant who has worked extensively with services for
children and their families and with residential and foster cares. A prolific
author, her most recent books for Hodder Arnold have been Understanding
Children and Young People and Equality in Childhood .
