Previously referred to as The No Blame Approach, the work of George and Barbara has been popular amongst practitioners but criticised by politicians. This publication incorporates an updated edition of their best selling Crying For Help and charts the recent controversy which lead to the removal of the method as a recommended intervention from the DfES website.For those who are interested in understanding, using and evaluating the method, this will provide a clear practical guide and an explanation of the theory underpinning the work.
