Re-Thinking Children's Care
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
This critically orientated book draws on a range of key empirical studies carried out in a variety of care contexts. It examines care from the perspectives of children, parents and care workers. It also takes an historical perspective. The discussion is situated in an analysis of economic, social and political change, from modernity to late modernity. It focuses on four key issues: the conceptualisation of care; how care translates its public policy; the nature of the care relationship; how care might be transformed in the future.
Rethinking Children's Care will be of interest to students of childhood studies, the sociology of childhood and child welfare. It is also directly relevant to policy makers, trainers and researchers as well as practitioners involved in children's care.
