Barn, Ravinder


IBSN: 9780713471366 Categories: ,


The author, Ravinder Barn, has based her study on empirical data collected from a survey of an inner-city Local Authority Social Services Department. Over 500 case histories have been analysed and evidence gathered from interviews with social workers, parents and children to provide a well-balanced and unique insight into the care careers of black children. The significance of race and racism on the decisions made by social workers is underlined by the revealing statistics which arise from this study. The book highlights the urgent need for an increased awareness of the requirements of black children in care, and provides essential reading for all students and practising social workers.
