Child Care in Practice
Child Care in Practice is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal that provides an international forum for professionals working in all disciplines in the provision of children's services, from social care to health care, medicine to psychology, education, the police and probationary services, to solicitors and barristers.
The strategic aims and objectives of the journal are:
- To develop the knowledge base of practitioners, managers and other professionals responsible for the delivery of professional child care services. The journal seeks to contribute to the achievement of quality services and the promotion of the highest standards.
- To achieve an equity of input from all disciplines working with children. The multi-disciplinary nature of the journal reflects that the key to many successful outcomes in the child care field lies in the close co-operation between different disciplines.
- To raise awareness of often-neglected issues such as marginalization of ethnic minorities and problems consequent upon by poverty and disability.
- To keep abreast of and continue to influence child care practice in response to children's legislation.
- To include the views of those who are in receipt of multi-disciplinary child care services.
