This chapter discusses the lessons that can be learned from the cases of direct social work with the children presented in the previous chapters. These include the importance of a sound understanding of attachment theory and its application to all work with children and the relevance of an understanding of post-traumatic stress reaction and the likelihood of this being a feature in the history of an abused child. This chapter also highlights the impact of direct work with children on the worker and the absolute necessity of good supervision and consultation.
