Working in partnership with families facing adversity

$16.95

By Nick Hopwood

When families with young children are affected by adversity, early childhood professionals can be in a unique position to help them reduce the effects that difficult circumstances may have on children. How educators engage with families in these contexts matters greatly.

Description

This book explains how:

  • educators and parents can recognise and work with differences, especially those related to knowledge and expertise
  • partnership can be understood and implemented as a mind-expanding process through which educators and parents can co-create new meanings, understanding and possibilities for action.

The book presents practical strategies—drawn from a study conducted in Australian settings—that can help educators work respectfully, jointly and effectively with parents affected by adversity. Through case studies and real-life examples, it also brings to life the key concepts of ‘making noticing count’ and working with ‘what matters’.
