Qxp 2 9/19/2008 11:34 AM Page 21 ASSESSMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES INTRODUCTION The journeys undertaken by children and families in contact with statutory child care services are many and varied, but all will begin with some form of assessment. This may be relatively fleeting or extensive but will invariably play an important part in how the journey proceeds. At its simplest, the process of assessment refers to the gathering of information to provide the basis for decision making, planning and resource allocation.

Baumrind’s (1991) work has also been widely utilised to identify different styles of parenting. She utilises two axes, based on responsiveness or warmth and demandingness or control respectively. Different positions on these two axes combine to produce four broad types of parenting (see Baumrind, 1991, for further subdivisions). Authoritative parents are high on both warmth and control, setting clear boundaries and monitoring behaviour but exercising reasoning and non-punitive discipline to encourage autonomy.

Within assessments, therefore, attachment behaviours can give important insights into children’s well-being and development, while the theory may help to explain the factors that lie behind them and to gauge the potential for change. Understanding attachment is particularly pertinent when temporary or permanent removal of a child is being considered, both in terms of recognising the effects of removal and the importance of maintaining contact between children and birth family members including siblings (Sanders, 2004).
