A handbook of parent-centred approaches
Policymakers may find in this book an opportunity to view policy and legislation about parents from a parental perspective. For students, this book is an important contribution to their learning development and competence acquisition in working with parents. For teachers, the book aims to provide a critical reflective moment in their continuous professional development. The book also invites professionals who are working in the social realm to reflect on their existing professional encounters with parents and to take a closer look at such encounters from a parent-centered perspective. In general, readers, hopefully wide ranging in their provenance, will be taken through a diversity of thoughts, reflections, descriptions and initiatives put forward by the authors, all in the name of parents as important collaborators.
