About this deal

Drawing on his magazine connections, he secured publication of Alice’s work in Life, which raised enough funds to migrate her to a nursing home. He then built on the initial visibility to organize an exhibition of her work at a local museum in 1951 — the first and only in her lifetime. When the show opened on October 7, now celebrated as Alice Austen Day, Alice was there with Gertrude by her side. A friend’s young sons in what Alice called her “express wagon,” May 1889. ( Alice Austen House archive.) Six women, Staten Island, 1895. ( Alice Austen House archive.) Record my learning and reflection on a regular basis and in accordance with Social Work England's guidance on continuing professional development.

Dr Loving is an honorary lecturer for the Centre for Child Protection at Kent University and has published work in the Child and Family Social Work and Children England journals. Her most recent publication is a chapter titled ‘Working with cases of neglect and emotional abuse’, featured in Child Protection and the Care Continuum. Shehas previously worked with Community Care, providing social workers with effective direct work techniques and producing guidance on understanding attachment relationships and writing about this in court. She was recently commissioned by Community Care to produce a practice guide on ‘Attachment Trauma’ and parenting. As well as informing assessments, asking questions like these, which prompt a parent to consider their child’s internal states, can help develop their capacity to mentalize with their child. You can also help parents to develop mentalization by modelling it yourself towards them. I had a brilliant session this week with a mum whose children have been on the brink of removal by the local authority and they had exhausted their options of intervention. If Chloe Angyal's Turning Pointe was a bit too much modern history and not enough memoir for you, but you want something more contemplative than a standard ballet memoir—or if you're interested in hearing more stories that don't read like a litany of successful performances with the occasional worrying injury thrown in— Don't Think, Dear makes for a compelling middle ground of personal narrative and broader view. And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to peruse Robb's bibliography... Recently diagnosed with autism and dyslexia, Shannon has only ever given the hand-turned bowls she makes on her incredible foot-powered pole lathe as gifts. Dom and mentor Alice love her work and the way she produces it, and want to convince Shannon that she and the bowls she creates are much more marketable than she thinks. Alice sets Shannon a challenge to make her bowls recognisably hers, but does she believe that what she does has real value?

Demonstrate good subject knowledge on key aspects of social work practice and develop knowledge of current issues in society and social policies impacting on social work. Last week I ran a session on applying mentalization principles in fostering with a lovely team in Ireland. Children in foster care must experience a caregiver who has a curiosity for what is going on inside their mind, what are they thinking…how are they feeling? Dr Loving has worked within the field of Child Protection for eleven years and currently works independently providing parental assessments and intervention work for local authorities. Dr Loving delivers attachmentand relationship based practice training to social care practitioners within the UK and Ireland.

Yesterday I had a call to introduce myself to a client who I am going to start working with during a 12 week video based mentalization intervention. Her relationship with her 7 year old daughter is at breaking point. I have worked within the field of child protection for 11 years, across local authority and residential settings. For the past seven years, I have worked independently for local authorities, completing parenting assessments and offering mentalization based parenting intervention.Mentalizing means you can make links between how your own thoughts and feelings influence your behaviour. We also mentalize for others – attuning to what another person may be thinking or feeling and how this may be impacting their behaviour. Most children have items of food, toys or activities that they are particularly fond of, and others that they may dislike. For the parent to be aware of these likes and dislikes can demonstrate not only their attunement to what is in their child’s mind, but also the way in which they view them as an autonomous individual. This is eminently readable and well-paced nonfiction, never dry or dull, and I loved this frank but loving look into the world of ballet. Dom welcomes woodturner Shannon from Northumberland and upcycler Ryan from south Wales into his Maker’s Marquee. Alice Robb was one of Balanchine's girls: as a student at the School of American Ballet, it didn't matter that Balanchine had been dead twenty years; his ghost still roamed the halls, and girls clustered, breathless, around dancers who once upon a time had studied with Balanchine, who could impart his wisdom.
