Free text Through accounts of her own and other's experience in attending to children and extracts from writers in several fields, the author paints a picture of what is needed to successfully care for children in a number of circumstances that agencies and workers may find themselves involved in. She believes that workers in a variety of settings such as: health visitors; foster parents; residential workers; doctors; community, nursery, paediatric and school nurses; psychiatrists and psychologists; as well as magistrates and judges; teachers and police, "make decisions affecting the whole of children's present and future lives". Therefore co-operation between these adults is an indispensable precondition for effective work.
