Internationally recognized as the gold standard in providing services to children with special needs and their family members, family-centred practice has developed substantially over the past two decades. However, there has not been until now a basic practice text for guiding professional education and skill building across diverse areas. Filling this significant gap, Partnering with Parents is a primer on family-centred practice for professionals working in children’s health and developmental services. The material in this textbook spans interdisciplinary training across key child service sectors (particularly child development, child mental health, and children’s health). The authors identify and discuss the key principles of the model as it is practiced in Canada, with a focus on working alliances, empowerment methods, and the development of social support resources. Providing examples of the application of family-centred practice in a wide range of service settings, Partnering with Parents will be useful for the social workers, nurses, psychologists, and allied health professionals who work together in complex service situations.

This book is intended to act as a guide, not a "follow this path and all will be well" roadmap. There are as many routes to the objective (safety and sanity) as there are families taking the journey. Just as you plan a trip, Slepner hopes to help you plan your path through your relative's older years. Looking at the map to plan your route and to check for alternate pathways is an excellent way to be sure that your trip is as smooth as possible. Planning for your family's older years will have much the same outcome if you take the time to plan for the journey and anticipate obstacles you may face along the way.
