The power of their voices: assessing the child and family

Show Summary Details


In this chapter we shall examine the assessment of the child and family using a two-tiered approach. First, we shall examine the necessary fundamentals of assessment and identify how various concepts apply through case discussion. We shall then review and integrate data from a large-scale study of needs assessment of bereaved families that identified critical components of assessment and quality care.
