misunderstood or dismissed or even punished, we will not have been given the opportunity to remember and work through and we will be much more likely to repeat, to act out, to express our feelings in confusing and sometimes unacceptable ways. (p. 16) Young people in NI carry the trauma of the past, and without adequate opportunities for healing and expression, the pain and burden become unbearable, tolerated through self-medication and self-destructive behaviours.

and empower rebellious forces within civil society. This chapter returns to the problem of containment, de-mobilisation and fragmentation, dimensions of urban governance that mitigate against both antagonistic and constructive forms of resistance. This endeavour casts light on a number of issues: first, the means by which urban regimes contain and enclose resistance, and insulate themselves from potential impacts; second, the chilling and divisive effects of social partnership traditions; third, structural and institutional limitations on regime transition through

The containment of the projects ‘A lot of people, I think, feel disenfranchised, feel that they don’t have a voice.’ (Caroline) Both projects sought democratic innovation principally in a changed relationship between those within communities and the local authority, modelled along more communitarian lines. It was Caroline who laid out this vision most clearly. Drawing on her
Gillian Dalley: Care. casts and containment Policy & Politics vol 27 no 4 CARE,COSTSAND CONTAINMENT: The social policy of long-term care Gillian Dalley Current social values dictate that old age should be regarded as a social problem. Older people are regarded as heavy consumers of health and social care; they call upon the resources of the state for their retirement pensions and income maintenance and they rely on the state to pro- vide them with supported housing. The point is frequently made that up to 42% of health servic- es are consumed by people over 65
RESEARCH ARTICLE The containment of Occupy: militarized police forces and social control in America Matthew Morgan* Department of Political Science, York University, York Centre for International and Security Studies, Toronto, Canada The spread of the Occupy movement across the globe has reinvigorated the political, expanding the horizon of possibility after over thirty years of closure imposed by neoliberalism. While a literature which analyzes the interlinking nature of these social movements across the world is emerging, the response to them by powerful public
practised now, all too often results from a system that focuses too much on ‘what and when’ things happen and not enough on ‘how and why’. The emphasis is on procedures rather than the impact of the work on practitioners, and in this climate, compassion and empathy are much more difficult to develop and sustain because the emphasis is on the task, rather than on the person. Others have observed a lack of containment of anxieties and a high level of defensive practice ( Hinshelwood and Skogstadt, 2000 , p 11). How is it that such bounded reflective spaces have become the
Practitioners must be able to listen, talk, communicate and engage with children and young people if they are going to make a real difference to their lives. The key principles of collaborative, relational, child-centred working underpin all the ideas in this bestselling, practice-focused textbook.
Using an innovative ‘Knowing, Being, Doing’ model, it features reflective exercises, practice examples, vignettes, cutting-edge research findings and theoretical perspectives.
This new edition includes:
• Updated references to policy, legislation, professional requirements, practice tools and research, including around unaccompanied young refugees and asylum seekers, and child sexual exploitation;
• New learning from ethnographic and observational research of social workers’ direct practice with children;
• Added focus on the context for practice, including the role of supervision and organisational containment in developing practitioners’ emotional capabilities.
With detailed coverage of key skills, this book will equip students and practitioners with the critical thinking and tools needed for effective practice in order to promote the welfare, protection and rights of children and young people.
Ten percent of the world’s population lives on islands, but until now the place and space characteristics of islands in criminological theory have not been deeply considered. This book moves beyond the question of whether islands have more, or less, crime than other places, and instead addresses issues of how, and by whom, crime is defined in island settings, which crimes are policed and visible, and who is subject to regulation. These questions are informed by ‘the politics of place and belonging’ and the distinctive social networks and normative structures of island communities.
How do we maintain core values and rights when governments impose restrictive measures on our lives?
Declaring a state of emergency is the best way to protect public health in a pandemic but how do these powers differ from those for national security and economic crises?
This book explores how human rights, democracy and the rule of law can be protected during a pandemic and how emergency powers can best be ended once it wanes.
Written by an expert on constitutional law and human rights, this accessible book will shape how governments, opposition, courts and society as a whole view future pandemic emergency powers.
This book presents a psychosocial examination of the changing relationships between users of services, professionals and managers in the post-war welfare state. It: develops practice-based perspectives on changing social relations of care; discusses the psychic dimensions of entitlement, risk, responsibility, compassion and dependency in the welfare system; develops a grid to link the interpersonal, institutional and sociopolitical dimensions of successive post-war welfare settlements; explores the potential contribution of psychoanalytic concepts to social policy and practice.
This book is aimed at all those who have an interest in the development of responsive welfare institutions, including policy makers, professionals and academics.
