- Not available
Recording how practitioners from diverse backgrounds came together as a team, this invaluable book shares their experience of work with individual clients, and recounts their positive and negative journeys developing effective inter-agency work. The team members - from social work, child/adolescent and adult mental health, family and occupational therapy, psychology, residential work, paediatrics and general practice - provide here: a blueprint, successful across the 17-years of this team - JACAT in Exeter; help developing the flexibility needed to navigate legislative change and implement new practice; guidance on going beyond child protection processes to deliver evidence-based therapeutic support, especially to children and families affected by abuse; and confidence to work out your own therapeutic interventions, drawing on local experiences and lessons from further a field. The case studies - detailing of direct engagement with young children, teenagers, children with disabilities, parents of abused children, their families, and adults who were abused as children - provide an excellent resource for practitioners and trainers. The local networks can use them as templates to help find the best solutions to the need for joined-up working.
