Dilemmas and Decision Making in Residential Childcare

«

"Supervisors and practice teachers have long struggled to support workers and students to bring appropriate theory to residential child care, and often revert to what they know from casework oriented approaches. This small book confirms what I have always believed to be at the root of this difficulty, and that it that there is just too much going on in the life-spaces where adults and children come together in the course of everyday living to be able to package it in the nice clean ways that students, workers and managers would like to think we should be able to... The book should be a boon to practice educators and supervisors supporting students and workers as they embark on what Abbi Jackson recognises as the ‘unique privilege’ of life-space work."

"This unique book provides in depth perspectives on the complex task of effectively caring for children living in residential care.  It is written in a heartfelt way and is immensely useful for all staff working in such settings or those considering or supporting these roles. The overarching emphasis is on placing children, and the trauma they have experienced, at the very centre of the task of the residential child care worker.  It does this by the skilful use of fictional case vignettes, “Today’s Events” and reflective tasks for workers and staff teams to undertake.  Personal challenges for staff are acknowledged including how sometimes this complex work can test our ability to remain the ‘adult in the room’.  In doing this it provides the possibility to work in not just a trauma informed way but in a trauma responsive way."
