To Protect and Respect: Advocacy for Your Child. a Child Advocate's Handbook by John W Pelosi( Book )

This manual, designed for parents and professionals in psychology, social work, and education, attempts to increase understanding of child advocacy and offers practical suggestions on how to become an advocate for an individual child. The handbook provides a systematic way to monitor the environment of a child, to determine whether his individual needs for personal growth are being met, to evaluate these needs, and to develop options for improving negative situations. The booklet describes a sequence of three tasks, each with a number of carefully delineated sub-steps to be carried out by the child advocate: (1) monitoring (Actively seeking information about the child and how he experiences different situations), (2) assessing (deciding whether a situational change is needed), and (3) advocating (Acting to bring about a change). Observation and assessment worksheet samples are included. (Cs)

A matter of service : how to monitor agencies that serve children by Harold D Holder( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This manual, designed to increase citizen understanding of child advocacy, offers practical suggestions on how groups of citizens, civic clubs, and fraternal organizations can become advocates for children in a community. The booklet describes child advocacy, child service agency monitoring, and possible ways to improve community services for children. Six steps for systematic monitoring are outlined: (1) the identification of agencies currently providing services, (2) the selection of agencies for monitoring, (3) the identification of data to be collected, (4) the selection of data collecting techniques, (5) the determination of scope, and (6) the summarization of the data. It is suggested that regular monitoring by child advocacy groups will stimulate self-monitoring in agencies previously unconcerned with accountability. (Cs)
