Analysing childrens needs is a crucial part of assessment in child protection, yet support for practitioners carrying it out is lacking. Making Sense of Child and Family Assessment provides best practice guidance on how to analyse the information gathered during the assessment of the needs of children and young people and their families. The application of assessment frameworks hinges on human qualities and skills which are naturally prone to bias and inconsistency. This book provides practical, accessible guidance on how to apply assessment frameworks successfully, how to increase accuracy and empathy and how to analyse and represent childrens needs faithfully in order to improve outcomes. The author provides an overview of key elements of theory, research and practice, and covers issues such as how information is gathered and analysed by different professionals in different sectors, and how this information is shared; how to form accurate hypotheses about cases; how to develop professional intuition; and how to improve analytical skills. Professionals working in child welfare and protection roles, such as social workers, health visitors, midwives and teachers, will find this practical guide to analysis invaluable in interpreting needs and outcomes. The titles in the Best Practice in Working with Children series are written for the multi-agency professionals working to promote childrens welfare and protect them from harm. Each book in the series draws on current research into what works best for children, providing practical, realistic suggestions as to how practitioners in social work, health and education can work together to promote the resilience and safety of the children in their care. Brigid Daniel is Professor of Social Work in the Department of Applied Social Science at the University of Stirling. She is co-author of several textbooks and practice resources on child care and protection. She was a member of the multi-disciplinary team that carried out a national ministerial review of child protection practice in Scotland.
