Connecting with children: developing working relationships focuses on how adults connect with children and develop supportive relationships. It illustrates how good communication and positive and participative relationships can be developed with children across the range of universal and specialist children's services. The contributors draw on theory, research and practice to enable understanding of why good communication and good relationships are crucial for many important contemporary issues involving children including children's rights, bullying, resilience, participation and transitions. This book will be essential reading for students, practitioners and academics who wish to further their knowledge of childhood and children's lives and to further develop good practice with children.
