Exploring concepts of child well-being

One of the main contentions of this book is that the way in which children's well-being is conceptualised will shape the service response to which it gives rise. The aim here, therefore, is not to detail what quantities of which service are required to match particular problems in order to achieve specified outcomes. To do this would require in-depth descriptions of specific interventions. Rather, the purpose of this chapter is to deduce the contrasting styles of service that the five conditions (or types of ill-being) require — in other words, the features that services should have logically if they are to have the potential to be effective in addressing a designated condition.
