This best-selling, practical book offers insights into communications with children and young people gained through the author’s extensive experience. Michelle Lefevre argues powerfully that such communication is more effective if it takes place within an engaged, direct work relationship, where each task is carried out in a child-centered fashion through collaborative work, in which the young people are explicitly asked for their views, given information and explanations, and have their feelings and indirect communications attended to. Designed for students and practitioners, the book introduces an innovative  “Knowing, Being, Doing”  model, with exercises designed to help them learn through reflecting on their own practice, so that their understanding of a particular child and how best to work with him or her can develop while working through the book.
