Book review

Working in Children s Homes is one of an important series of books on residential care based on research sponsored by the Department of Health. This book draws on extensive research conducted over a three-year period. The authors address the challenges and complexities facing those who work with and in children s homes. On the basis of interviews and discussions with heads of homes and staff groups, the authors explore the tasks which face staff groups, the rationale for their procedures, their sources of stresses and rewards, and the everyday ups and downs characteristic of residential care. Key tasks are discussed in depth, such as working with individual children, the mix of young people, managers and others in their own organisation, and the wider networks surrounding the home and the child. Characteristics of good practice are named, and factors which facilitate good practice and good outcomes are identified. Valuable recommendations are made for
* implementing and modifying procedures to improve working practices


* staff selection and training

* procedures and communication channels in the larger organisation and surrounding networks
Working in Children s Homes provides a comprehensive commentary on the nature of care and working practices related to children s homes.It is essential reading for all those concerned with the care of children and young people in residential settings.
