Residential Child Care in Practice
Making a Difference
Distributed for Policy Press at the University of Bristol
"This book is a gem. It addresses what should be at the centre of residential practice—personalised caring relationships which develop a youngster's sense of self worth."
"This book highlights and provides insight into the core values of the field. . . . This book can help those on the front line, social workers, managers and executives take a hard look at what they are doing and challenge them all to think just a little bit differently."
"This is exactly the sort of book that should be required reading for all practitioners and policy makers in the field. . . . It is the first book that I will be reaching for from now on, quite simply a classic text in the making."
