CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Assessment, intervention and living with children who are looked after or
adopted all require an understanding of psychology and its application.
This innovative collection makes thinking psychologically about looked after
and adopted children accessible and, in doing so, provides an insight into the
world of these children. Informed by research, practice and psychological
theory, this volume provides an overview of the area and considers the context
for helping children change and develop. It goes on to describe in detail the
techniques and approaches used by clinicians, and explains how interventions
can be developed and adapted for children and young people living in
residential, foster and adoptive care. Careful consideration is also given to
carers and families living with these children.
With its multi-disciplinary approach, Thinking Psychologically About Children
Who Are Looked After and Adopted will appeal to all professionals involved in
the care and education of placed children. It will also be of interest to
policy makers and lecturers and students of social work.
