We are pleased to invite you to the book launch of: Observation in Health and Social Care: Applications for Learning, Research and Practice with Children and Adults.

Edited by Clare Parkinson, Lucille Allain, Helen Hingley-Jones, this new book explores the latest approaches to therapeutic observation in health and social care. This multidisciplinary book discusses and analyses its uses in a range of practical contexts with children, families and adults.

With contributions from Stephen Briggs, Pat Cartney, Andrew Cooper, Minna Daum, Claire Kent, Duncan McLean and Graham Music, the book draws on psychoanalytic ideas and theories of human development as a base for professional learning. The experienced editors and authors offer theoretically informed models to teach observation skills in professional programmes, helping their readers prepare for successful intervention in any setting.
