Meeting the therapeutic and support needs of children in care who have experienced early abuse and neglect

Book Summary:

Care transforms the lives of some of the UK’s most vulnerable children, protecting them from harm and providing the love and nurture they need to thrive. But there is a long way to go to ensure that we provide the most effective support for each and every child and young person in care.

This book brings together leading academics, practitioners and policy analysts to set out the implications of research and examine the challenges faced by children in care. It aims to provoke discussion on how to improve support for children in care to ensure they are all protected from harm.
