Addressing issues of concern to child care social workers, particularly analytical assessment and how to avoid common pitfalls in thinking and practice, Putting Analysis into Assessment is the essential guide to improving assessment practice in child care social work. It provides strong theoretical foundations, and successfully demonstrates how these ideas can be translated into practice.
With reference to the Framework for the Assessment of Children in Need and their Families, the Common Assessment Framework, as well as specialist assessments, the book covers every stage of the assessment process - including planning and preparation, hypothesising, involving children, making, recording and reviewing decisions.
This revised edition offers a range of new and tested practice tools, case studies, practice development sessions and activities, plus new sections on risk and resilience and assessing need and risk in chronic situations. The toolkit will: aid practitioners in their thinking before, during and at the conclusion of their work with children and families provide managers with materials to use in supervision and team development enable trainers to deliver training to those involved in social work and interagency assessments offer lecturers practical tools and stimulating materials that will help students bridge the worlds of theory and practice.
