Overview

Considering the rights of the child is now central to good multi-agency working, Children's Right in Practice offers an explanation of the theoretical issues and the key policy developments that have impacted practice. It helps the reader to understand children's rights in relation to their role in working with children and young people. Looking at education, health, social care and welfare, it bridges the gap between policy and practice for children from birth to 19 years.

Chapters cover the child's right to play, youth justice and children's rights, the voice of the child, ethical dilemmas in different contexts, involvement, participation and decision making, safeguarding and child protection, social justice and exclusion.

This book helps the reader understand what constitutes good practice, while considering the advantages and tension of working across disciplines.
