Working in Partnership: The Family Partnership Model is a revised and updated text that addresses the importance of working in partnership with families. It offers a clear and detailed description of all aspects of the Family Partnership Model, which focuses on how to build effective working relationships with parents in order to ensure they have the support they need to create healthy environments for their children.
Recent attention on the effectiveness of working practices between professionals in social services and child care settings and parents makes the launch of Working in Partnership: The Family Partnership Model by child heath care experts Hilton Davis and Crispin Day a timely publication.
This book will be of interest to professionals, students and volunteers based in community health, social services, mental health, education, youth services, child centres & child care settings and parents.
Throughout, it carefully elaborates the skills required for establishing best practice communication and relationships with parents, so that professionals can truly understand the challenges and the difficulties they face, and work together to achieve effective outcomes. Overall, its aim is to put parents at the centre of their process of change.
It is available on its own without restriction and will be of interest to anyone concerned with helping parents, including parents themselves.
