Product description

Why should you buy Re-rooted Lives: Inter-disciplinary work within the Family Justice System Second edition

The interdisciplinary Dartington Conferences, introduced the family judiciary to the important role of child psychology and psychoanalysis in the outcome of child protection cases.

A decade on, the diverse professions working in the family justice system continue to share the common goal of preventing or ameliorating the effects of 'rooted sorrows', despite the inevitable tension between the aspiration to 're-root lives' and the difficulty of providing that ideal in many individual cases.

Through papers written by distinguished contributors drawn from various disciplines, edited and grouped thematically by Carola Thorpe and Judith Trowell, Re-rooted Lives provides a detailed exploration of both the theory and practice which underpins the attempt to achieve the best outcomes for children and their families.

This fascinating book is essential reading and an important source of reference for all those involved in child protection work including lawyers, health professionals, social workers, mediators, and the police.
