Web of relationships/Social ecological perspective
1 Wellbeing is a term which can be used to describe positive emotional and physical health. For young-people this means; their basic needs are met, they feel their life has a purpose, they feel included in society and they have a good quality of life (Hamilton 2011)
1.1 Good practice needs to be built on solid foundations of well-thought-through approaches to practice, drawing on tried and tested knowledge and skills while remaining open to new ideas and ways of working.
1.1.1 Example of three young people in foster care - These three young people have a lot to say about the deep and long-lasting effects of being in care. Their relationships with their foster carers, social workers and residential care workers are, of course, very mixed and they have strong points to make about their relationships with these workers around trust, respect, dealing with anger, honesty, and listening and thinking before decisions are made.
2 The Government's Green paper “Every Child Matters” focuses on five key areas which are essential for young-people's wellbeing
2.1 Healthy - Good lifestyle Good mental health Good physical health
2.2 Safe - Ability to look after themselves, Safe from harm, Protected from neglect
2.3 Achieving and Enjoying - Obtaining life skills for adulthood, Enjoying life and achieving their goals
2.4 Positive contribution - Being included in society, Not participating in anti-social behaviour ,Not getting involved in crime
2.4.1 In-order for young-people to achieve these outcomes the whole of society has a role to play in promoting and protecting them to ensure their wellbeing, opinions and interests are valued and protected
2.5 Economic well-being -Achieving their full potential despite any economical challenges/disadvantages
3 The web of relationships surrounding a young-person can also be crucial to promoting their resilience and protecting their wellbeing
3.1 LG 3 discusses how -Practitioners can use the social-ecological model to critically assess the different layers of the relationships, focusing on how they interact and affect the young-person's life
3.1.1 Hamilton's chapter explains - Young-people's wider world such as their family, communities, Government and public or voluntary organisations can also have a big influence on their wellbeing (web of relationships)
3.1.2 The social-ecological model helps practitioners identify where a young-person has support and which areas need more attention As seen in the case of “Dee”, resilience can be affected by factors surrounding the individual, family, community and society
4 The Children's Workforce Development Council states - Multi-agency working is a practice approach which involves the collaboration of all practitioners working with a particular young-person. The family and all other services come together to work in an integrated manner that puts the young-person's wellbeing in the centre of all priority
4.1 LG 10 mentions - Multi-agency working promotes collaborative practice by integrating the “team around the child” so everyone involved in the child's life can work together efficiently and effectively through sharing information and communicating regularly with the same clear goals and priorities
4.1.1 Lesley a heath worker in LG 9 mentions the following skills are needed for sucessful integrated working - Common operational language, good communication skills, the ability to trust and respesct each other practices. People must be commitited to partnership working, not working with top down structures
5 Assessment frameworks emphasise the importance of good communication and relationships with children, young people and families, the improvement of services, integrated working, coordination of input, shared responsibility for outcomes and clear leadership
5.1 Holly - my world traingle The ‘My World Triangle’ is only one part of the ‘Getting it right for every child’ approach. The ‘My World Triangle’ is a framework for gathering information – analysing it and making an assessment prior to making a plan is an essential part of an ASPIRE approach
5.1.1 It is also helpful in emphasising that assessment is a process which is dynamic and changes over time. The subsequent plan which might be made to support Holly would be based on the assessment – so it is important to have as accurate a picture as possible and keep both the assessment and subsequent plan under review
