"This is a brilliant book and a godsend for anyone working in child care at any level. This will become the standard for child care -- it is quite simply the best book available anywhere on safeguarding children." Michele Elliott OBE, Founder, Kidscape Safeguarding children and young people will provide you with essential information to ensure high standards for child protection across early years settings, schools and play provision. The book covers key legislation and guidance, with clear implications for practice. Full explanation of terms, examples to encourage reflection and scenarios all support a full understanding of this complex subject. This new edition integrates recent developments over vetting and barring and brings readers up to date with changes in the system for safeguarding. New content reflects increased concern about health issues like childhood obesity and a safe approach to use of image technology on mobile phones. Practitioners are given the tools to address continuing dilemmas around partnership with families, the role of physical contact and how to blend safeguarding with best practice for equality.

Published in association with Save the Children Priscilla Alderson examines the often overlooked issue of the rights of young children, starting with the question of how the 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of the Child applies to the youngest children, from birth to eight years of age. The question of finding a balance between young children's rights to protection, to provision (resources and services) and to participation (expressing their views, being responsible) is discussed. The author suggests that, in the belief we are looking after their best interests, we have become overprotective of children and deny them the freedom to be expressive, creative and active, and that improving the way adults and children communicate is the best way of redressing that balance. This second edition has been updated and expanded to include the relevance of UNCRC rights of premature babies, international examples such as the Chinese one-child policy, children's influence on regional policies, and the influence on young children's lives of policies such as Every Child Matters and those of the World Bank, IMF, OECD and UNICEF. This readable, informative and thought-provoking book is a compelling invitation to rethink our attitudes to young children's rights in the light of new theories, research and practical evidence about children's daily lives. It will be of interest to anyone who works with young children.

Since the third edition of Practising Social Work Law published in 2010, new legislation – such as the Care Act 2014, the Equality Act 2010, and the Children and Families Act 2014 – has had a significant impact on the social work profession. Practitioners must not only know the law; they must also have a critical appreciation of its implications for human rights, civil liberties and social justice. They must exercise their powers and duties in ways underpinned by professional ethics, in a context of severe resource constraint and under constant public and political scrutiny. Now going into its fourth edition, Practising Social Work Law seeks to build social workers' confidence in legal interpretation and implementation. It focuses on promoting practitioners' knowledge and skills in recognising, locating and articulating legal issues, and using the law to inform practice standards and deliver positive outcomes for service users. This timely, fully revised new edition of this well-respected text combines up-to-date statute, case law and guidance with extended practice examples and questions for reflection, making it an invaluable resource for students, practitioners and educators alike.
