Working with children and families is a highly specialised and skilled area of social work. To be effective social workers need to be flexible, knowledgeable and highly mindful of many aspects of the family and the obstacles that can arise when working with this group.
Social care professionals who work specifically with children and families often provide guidance and support, counselling and supervisory services to families facing economic, family, substance abuse and illness-related difficulties. These social care workers collaborate with teachers, lawyers, police and medical professionals to provide quality care to families and children.
This course in child and family social care will aim to introduce you to the structure of the family, and to teach you to take the necessary factors into consideration as well as the proper procedures and courses of action involved when working with children and families in a social work context.

thoroughly enjoyed this course. There was no rush and I could take it at my own time. I am visually impaired and this has boosted my confidence immensely. I had no trouble with any of the modules.
