This reader provides a critical perspective on work with children and young people at a time of change. Written by experts with a wide range of academic and professional experience, it examines the ways that ideas inform practice, explores recent changes in the organisation of services, especially moves towards greater integration, and explores what it means to be a critical, reflective practitioner. Covering the whole age range from early years to youth, the book will be relevant to anyone working with children and young people, for example in social work, education, healthcare, youth work, youth justice and leisure services
