"I feel that this text is absolutely ideal for students who are studying at undergraduate level and I find that the text overall is easy to read and is in most parts very concise in conveying concepts and ideas... I will certainly be recommending it to others, and I also feel that this text would be beneficial to those already working in children's services as it provides a vital review of policy and practice development and how this has been shaped around a variety of different factors, including theory, international and European approaches, in addition to direction from central and localised government."

"Clearly written and very accessible, the information in this book should make it a leader in text books for students but also for seasoned practitioners [...] It forces us to think beyond the structural to the cultural context of our work. [There is a] clarity of how to listen to children and work with them, respecting each one as a unique individual who will make their own mind up about who they will trust and share their thoughts with about important issues in their lives."
