Thinking, research and practice in this important area of work all continue to change rapidly. The pressures and expectations on workers and agencies increase. The consequences for everyone involved are wide-ranging and far-reaching. Essential reading for anyone who needs to keep up-to-date with how we understand and work with these young people, this book: reports on emerging areas of practice; offers contributions from professional disciplines who have recently become involved in this work; provides a single source for reference and practice on what is new and important; and, has been brought together by an editor whose three earlier books (RHP 1999, 2002, 2005) have all been highly acclaimed. "Essential reading...a mine of information." - "Rostrum". "A range of material from around the world." - "Community Care". "Very interesting and well-written." - "Child & Family Social Work". This new volume builds on what was reported there. It addresses: research and theory; assessment; intervention; treatment; engagement; management and outcomes. It draws on an even wider range of professional disciplines, continues to offer a range of perspectives and - crucially - extends the availability of options for workers.
