Hearing the Children

The Collected Papers of the 2003 Dartington Hall Conference

Edited by: Lord Justice Thorpe, Justine Cadbury

Hearing the Children is the result of the 2003 Interdisciplinary Conference held at Dartington Hall. The conference assembled a uniquely qualified group of contributors, drawn from the professions most closely involved in the resolution of child welfare problems. This book brings together their papers and offers both theoretical background and practical experience relating to the participation of children in family proceedings. The book presents the latest thinking on: child attachment theory and its implications in practice; communication with children; protection of children who are from minority ethnic, mixed heritage and refugee families; and participation and representation of children in proceedings. Edited by the Rt Hon Lord Justice Thorpe and Justine Cadbury, with contributions from leading experts from a range of relevant disciplines, this book will be essential reading for all those involved in child law and practice.
