Values and Practice in Children's Services

Macmillan International Higher Education

Values and their application are a continuing area of concern for those involved in work with children and families. This book provides a means of understanding models of social welfare and children's services, and relating these to the challenges of practice. Key debates about values in children's services are identified and examined, in their legislative, policy and practice contexts. The text develops a range of approaches to practice, utilizing case examples to illustrate the challenges, and to help practitioners with the task of reconciling competing expectations in their work with children.

This book offers a comprehensive overview of the purpose of history for psychology. Its purpose is to ask why history should be of concern to psychologists in teaching and research, and in theory and in practice. The future position of humanities subjects is currently highly debated on all fronts. Chapters focus on the arguments from psychologists, upgrade the precision and quality of discussion, and thus, provide a base for affirming the place of history of psychology in the broad field of psychological activity.
A fundamental question dominates the discussion. Is the purpose of the history of psychology to serve current psychology, rather than to contribute to historical knowledge – and to enter large debates about what historical knowledge means for being human? If the answer is yes, as most psychologists who come to the issues will presume, in what ways? Are these ways philosophically grounded, or do the social and political conditions of power and funding in universities dominate the arguments? In this volume, the contributors demonstrate the relation between historical investigations and current practice.
Featured topics include: The history of psychology and its relation to feminism.
The history of psychology and its relation to current research assessment and curriculum.
The history of science and its relation to psychology.
The metalanguage for psychology.
Case studies of history in theory construction.Centrality of History for Theory Construction in Psychology will be of interest to psychologists, professors, graduate psychology students, and scholars in the human sciences.
