how dangerous families became troubled
Chapter 8 argues that the notion of family as the context for the resolution of children's needs extends the scope for supporting change and provides an accurate reflection of most children's lived experiences. It argues for the importance of an understanding of identities that can encompass the importance of past, present and future and that barriers to family engagement in the care and protection of children have, in part, been a product of reluctance to go beyond the presenting unit (however fractured that may be), despite the evidence that family networks are fluid, diverse and rarely geographically specific.
