Safeguarding Babies and Young Children: A Guide for Early Years Professionals (Paperback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


The book recognises the main principles that underpin effective safeguarding practices and explores the application of a range of key tools that will facilitate a sense of empowerment for practitioners dealing with safeguarding issues. The authors emphasize the importance of preventative interventions as a positive means of impacting on the lives of children and their families. They do this through such processes as the Common Assessment Framework, as well as maintaining the need within the system for responses to be made to urgent concerns that are closely related to safeguarding and child protection processes.

With practical case studies throughout, the book helps you:

Understand what your responsibilities are

Decide what appropriate action should be taken

Develop a means of coping with this sensitive area

Make sense of current policies and procedures

This book is essential reading for all early years students and professionals who wish to explore and rehearse various safeguarding situations in preparation for practice.
