"" DPI's] process has been a key catalyst of our growth."" -- THOMAS CHUA, chairman, Teckwah Industrial Corporation
""The DPI process requires the organization and all its key managers to quite extensively draw on their collective knowledge and experience to formulate answers to the challenging questions framed.

Dr David Wilkins is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Bedfordshire, UK. Dr Godfred Boahen is a Policy and Research Officer at the British Association of Social Workers (BASW), UK. How can social workers develop their critical analysis skills? What role does critical analysis play in the day-to-day activities of a social worker? And can we critically analyse in isolation? The ability to analyse contexts, scenarios and service users through a critical lens is vital to effective social work practice. Despite this, many social workers attempt to analyse situations alone, missing marks of significance. This book, written by two senior academics and practitioners who, at the time, were in the midst of their PhDs, offers a basis step-by-step model that busy social workers can use to develop a more critical and analytical mindset. It shows how analysis can be woven throughout the whole process of social work engagement, resulting in more effective decision-making, more efficient ways of working and, ultimately, better outcomes for social work service users. This is achieved by ways of handy tools, case studies and dilemmas, research summaries, and exercises and reflections points to tackle alone or with a colleague. Topics covered include: What analysis is, and why it is such an important skill in social work practice. The skills that underpin critical analysis, such as time management, planning, critical understanding, logical thinking, research-mindedness, creativity, communication, reflection and hypothesising. The role of emotion and intuition in critical analysis. The importance of supervision and team or supervised analysis. *** This book forms part of the Social Work Skills in Practice series. The series focuses on key social work skills required for working with children and adult service users, families and carers. The books offer both theoretical and evidence-informed knowledge, alongside the application of skills relevant for day-to-day social work practice. They are an invaluable resource for pre-qualifying students, newly-qualified social workers, academics teaching and researching in the field, as well as social work practitioners, including practice educators, pursuing continuous professional development. *** 'A timely and appropriate post-Munro book for social workers at all levels of experience. The chapter on emotion, intuition and critical analysis is a particularly welcome addition to the subject. A really useful book.' Dr Jane Reeves, Director of Studies, M.A. Child Protection, Co-Director Centre for Child Protection, University of Kent, UK
In 1778, New York state patriots forced colonists loyal to the British government to flee north into what became Ontario and Quebec. Many of the defiant young British Americans soon returned south as soldiers, spies and scouts to fight for their multigenerational farms along the Mohawk River, Lake Champlain and the Hudson River Valley. Eventually defeated, they were banished from their ancestral homelands forever. Mark Jodoin offers an enlightened look back at ten young men and women who were forced north into what became Ontario and Quebec, sharing the struggles that these Loyalists faced during our nation's founding.
""This text stands out in the field due to] its comprehensiveness.
While it makes a conventional bow to the necessity for up-to-date
research and evidence-based practice, it is unusual in its
insistence that to be fully understood these issues must also be
seen in both a historic and a cross-cultural perspective. This
updated edition should prove invaluable to students, academics,
policy makers and professionals across many jurisdictions."
"There are many valuable Child Abuse or Child Protection texts
available on the market, however very few successful provide a
comprehensive resource to support both. Not only does this book
provide an excellent insight into the subject of Child Abuse, but
it also explores the current difficulties within Safeguarding
Children and Child Protection practice, with clear explanation of
legislative changes and the modern challenges faced."
"This is a timely and much welcome new edition of Brian Corby's
highly respected work. It retains the excellent historical focus of
the previous editions, but has been substantially updated to take
account of the debates about the reform and reprofessionalistion of
social work in the wake of the death of (Baby) Peter
"This core text surveys the global landscape, recognising that
cultural contexts shape definitions of and responses to child abuse
and neglect ... The revised edition takes account of new directions
in policy and practice in the aftermath of the Munro review in
England, notably the need for systemic and therapeutic approaches
