"This book is aimed at child and families health professionals working within family centres.It begins by explaining what a ‘Making Connections’ group is and what the aims of the groups are. The book outlines ideas on how to run such a group, with ideas on how to start the discussions to help the parent to overcome their problems. This is followed by giving ways of introducing play sessions with the children and parents together.Although this book is not aimed at childminders it does offer a lot of insight into why families may behave as they do, which would enable us how to understand these behaviours so that some of the ideas could be adapted for use within a home setting, in order to support the children and families you work with.
