Overview

"This is the essential textbook for anyone working with parents. Sue Miller makes the theory come alive with real-life examples. Her long experience in this field and in-depth understanding make the subject accessible even to newcomers to the field. I strongly recommend that if you read only one textbook on work with parents, it should be this one."

Mary Crowley OBE, former Chief Executive Parenting UK

The importance of supporting parents is increasingly being recognised in research and policy, and there are continuing concerns about the consequences of failing to provide adequate support for parents.

This timely book provides practical advice on how to set up and deliver parenting services that support parents and improve outcomes for children. It:

  • Explores the latest research, policies and practices
  • Includes reflective questions to encourage the reader to develop their own perspectives
  • Considers changes to how modern families function
  • Looks at providing support for fathers and male carers

It is valuable reading for students, lecturers, practitioners, service managers and policy-makers and anyone working with children and their parents.
