Supporting children when parents separate

Author: Murch, Mervyn
Publisher: Policy Press
ISBN: 9781447345978
Release Date: 2018-07-04
Genre: Family & Relationships

After years of research and reflection on the work of the interdisciplinary family justice system Mervyn Murch offers a fresh approach to supporting the thousands of children every year who experience a complex form of bereavement following parental separation and divorce. This stressful family change, combined with the loss of support due to austerity cuts, can damage their education, well-being, mental health and long-term life chances. Murch argues for early preventative intervention which responds to children's worries when they first present them, without waiting until things have gone badly wrong. His radical proposals for reform involve a much more coordinated and joined up approach by schools, the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service, and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. This book encourages practitioners and academics to look outside their professional silos and to see the world through the eyes of children in crisis to enable services to offer direct support in a manner and at a time when it is most needed.

AQA would only give approval to one publisher so this book does not carry an official badge of approval. However the AQA Portfolio Curriculum team kindly gave advice on content and assessment to help me ensure it covers the specifications correctly and makes the required links to the other topics. Key features include tasks, evaluation pointers, examination tips and summary diagrams. There are lots of up-to-date examples to bring the subject to life and to show how human rights law can be used to illustrate the non-substantive law (the nature of law and the legal system). This book can be used as a self-study guide as well as in the classroom. It is written in a lively, clear and accessible way and is designed to help students of all learning styles to understand the subject. Although written for A level it is a useful introduction to the law needed for higher-level courses such as the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives course and various Law degree courses. Other books by Sally Russell The 'law explained' series offers a more in-depth coverage of individual areas of law with additional tasks, examples and examination practice. This means you can pick those topics for which you need more guidance (all the answers to tasks are included in the booklets).

Research Methods in Law

Author: Dawn Watkins
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135051372
Release Date: 2013-07-18
Genre: Law

The aim of this book is to explain in clear terms some of the main methodological approaches in legal research. This is an edited collection, with each chapter written by specialists in their field, researching in a variety of jurisdictions. Each contributor addresses the topic of "lay decision makers in the legal system" from one particular methodological perspective, explaining how they would approach the issue and discussing why their particular method might, or might not, be suited to this topic. In asking all contributors to focus on the same topic, the editors have sought to provide a common link throughout the text, thereby providing the reader with an opportunity to draw comparisons between methods with relative ease. In light of the broad geographical range of its contributors, the book is aimed at an international readership. This book will be of particular interest to PhD students in law, but it will also be of use to undergraduate dissertation students in law, LL.M Research students as well as prospective PhD students and early year researchers.
