Drawing on the authors wide experience, it focuses on the whole child, recognising the links between different parts of their lives: principally family, school and community. As valuable to readers who have some familiarity with the emerging concepts of ecological practice as it will be to those who may be new to the term, it recognises the links between different parts of childrens and young peoples lives, and the importance of working creatively with these connections. Such practice developments are especially timely in the UK in the context of Every Child Matters, Integrated Childrens Centres and Extended Schools.
