Negotiating Ageing: Politics, Society and Professional Practice in the Context of Long Lives
The demographic shift that is occurring as a result of an ageing international population brings with it the challenge of cultural adaptation as we begin to rethink the purpose of a long life, intergenerational relations, and the social connectedness and value of older adults. Solutions which have been proposed in the policy arena tend to be constructed around assumptive realities of long life, falling short of proposing the essential cultural adaptations required for societies where the generational groups have become roughly the same size. Utilising a psycho-social perspective that is critical to any understanding that links personal experience to wider social currents, Cultural Adaptations for an Ageing Population: Managing Identities for a Long Life: * Critically evaluates four of the most dominant contemporary discourses on the question of long life (extended working life, spiritual awareness, purposelessness and social connection), discussing their advantages and disadvantages as solutions to the questions of personal and social identity * Explores some of the key conceptual tools for the reconceptualization of the purpose of long life, including the construction of time, ideas of the natural and un-natural, and definitions of social purpose and value * Examines the implications of cultural adaption for the public spheres of policy, business and politics as well as the private spheres of identity, meaning and purpose. With the cultural landscape moving away from traditional interpretations of specialist gerontology as the questions of adult ageing are of growing interest to a number of groups, this book is essential reading for social workers, aged care nurses, counsellors and psychologists, as well as those working in the fields of social and public policy.

Selling Transracial Adoption: Families, Markets, and the Color Line
While focused on serving children and families, the adoption industry must also generate sufficient revenue to cover an agency's operating costs. With its fee-for-service model, Elizabeth Raleigh asks, How does private adoption operate as a marketplace? Her eye-opening book, Selling Transracial Adoption, provides a fine-grained analysis of the business decisions in the adoption industry and what it teaches us about notions of kinship and race. Adoption providers, Raleigh declares, are often tasked with pitching the idea of transracial adoption to their mostly white clientele. But not all children are equally desirable, and transracial adoption-a market calculation-is hardly colorblind. Selling Transracial Adoption explicitly focuses on adoption providers andemploys candid interviews with adoption workers, social workers, attorneys, and counselors, as well as observations from adoption conferences and information sessions, toillustrate how agencies institute a racial hierarchy-especially when the supply of young and healthy infants is on the decline. Ultimately, Raleigh discovers that the racialized practices in private adoption serve as a powerful reflection of race in America.

This book makes a distinctive contribution to reflections on what child-centred practice means in the complex area of child welfare. With a theoretical framework informed by insights from a number of disciplinary perspectives, the author pays particular attention to psychosocial, emotional, sensory and spatial influences. The book applies its ideas to case studies, in order to reflect on the contemporary landscape of children's services within the UK. The book sets out the way policy and law establish a complex terrain for contemporary child welfare practice. At a time when the government demands clear answers to perceived child protection failings, Pinkney carefully reflects upon the complexity involved in protecting children. This timely re-examination of child welfare will appeal to social work and children's services professionals; policy makers; as well as students and scholars of social work, childhood studies and social policy.

Fall or Fly: The Strangely Hopeful Story of Foster Care and Adoption in Appalachia
Chaos. Frustration. Compassion. Desperation. Hope. These are the five words that author Wendy Welch says best summarize the state of foster care in the coalfields of Appalachia. Her assessment is based on interviews with more than sixty social workers, parents, and children who have gone through the system. The riveting stories in Fall or Fly tell what foster care is like, from the inside out. In depictions of foster care and adoption, stories tend to cluster at the dark or light ends of the spectrum, rather than telling the day-to-day successes and failures of families working to create themselves. Who raises other people's children? Why? What's money got to do with it when the love on offer feels so real? And how does the particular setting of Appalachia-itself so frequently oversimplified or stereotyped-influence the way these questions play out? In Fall or Fly, Welch invites people bound by a code of silence to open up and to share their experiences. Less inspiration than a call to caring awareness, this pioneering work of storytelling journalism explores how love, compassion, money, and fear intermingle in what can only be described as a marketplace for our nation's greatest asset.

Highly recommended! - Scott Shannon, MD author of Mental Health for the Whole ChildA step-by-step approach to trauma-informed treatment.This is the first book that addresses trauma treatment for child and adolescents using a Family Systems Trauma (FST) model which goes beyond individual therapy to include the child and their entire family.Co-written by a renowned family therapist who created the Parenting with Love and Limits (R) model, it delivers a research-based , step-by-step approach that incorporates the child's immediate family along with their extended family to treat the traumatized child or adolescent.Using a stress chart, the child or adolescent's trauma symptoms are quickly identified. This strategy guides therapists in accurately diagnosing root causes of the child's trauma and culminates in the creation of co-created wound playbooks to heal trauma in both the child as well as other family members.Additional helpful features include extensive case examples, a menu of trauma techniques, wound playbook examples, evaluation forms, client handouts, and other practical tools to provide the therapist with a complete guide to implementing this approach. Child and family therapists, social workers, mental health counselors, and psychologists working in a variety of settings will find this book a valuable resource.Key Features:Provides a step-by-step, practice focused, time-limited modelUses a family systems approach for addressing child and adolescent trauma--the only book of its kindIncludes useful tools such as checklists, client handouts, and evaluation forms

Social Work with Disadvantaged and Marginalised People
Social workers, whatever their specialism, practise with people at the margins of society. It is therefore essential that all social work students not only understand the powers and processes that lead to disadvantage and marginalisation but develop the knowledge and skills needed to bring about change and uphold social justice in all aspects of their professional practice. Split into three parts, this book considers what is meant by disadvantage and marginalisation, how this can come about and the impact this may have on lives, before unpicking the key knowledge and skills needed to practice effectively with individuals and groups. It then goes on to show what good ethical and reflective practice looks like, going step-by-step through the ins and outs of using the law and policy to bring about change before considering key ethical dilemmas in practice.

Revealing the Inner World of Traumatized Children: An Attachment-Informed Model for Assessing Emotional Needs and Treatment
Bringing together the latest research and theory about a child's inner world and the impact of the world around them, this is a guide to understanding and responding to the emotional needs of traumatized children. Founded on the principle that traumatized children do not have a secure sense of self and therefore cannot relate to the outside world without becoming overwhelmed, this book brings psychoanalytic and psychodynamic understandings of child psychology together with current neuroscience and trauma theory. At the heart of the book is an attachment-informed assessment model and guidance for treatment. Professionals working therapeutically with traumatized children, including therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health workers, social workers and residential care workers, will benefit from the wealth of knowledge and valuable practice guidance presented in this book.
