Educationists, psychologists and practitioners bring Black perspectives to their examination of social care, health services and education. They identify how practitioners’ understanding can be developed so their work can reduce racial disadvantage and support all children’s healthy psychological growth.

The book is essential to professional development in major areas of care and education but it will take many practitioners and policy makers out of their comfort zone. This pioneering enterprise brings together academic and action research and theoretical understandings to present essential advice for practitioners on
- the issues in training and continuing professional development
- research and practice for targeted ethnic groups
- theoretical perspectives on research and practice
- curriculum development
- user involvement.
