Very specific to LAC (as the title suggests!) I was just looking for something a little more broad. Useful when exploring strategies and methods for LAC and the process behind this though.
This book is very well written and is informative. It provides a good overview for social work students on looked after children
this is One of the best little books I have read in relation to looked after children - clear detail going through all the different stages appropriate. Brilliant social work students and lecturers as well as professionals.
A very accessible text, suitable for social work students preparing for and during practice placements. A particularly useful chapter focusing upon work with children with disabilities.
Wide-ranging coverage of an important area covered in an accessible way
