Audrey and Becky have written a thoughtful, practical and sensitive book which will help practitioners to communicate with children and young people. Audrey and Becky are qualified social workers, and draw on their own experiences of engaging with children and young people about subjects which are difficult for adults and children to talk about. Although titled 'conversation' starters, one of the joys of this book is that it doesn't only rely on talk-based encounters, and describes activities which have been road-tested by children and the authors. I will be recommending it to social work students and to practitioners on our post-qualifying Masters in Applied Professional Studies (Child Welfare and Protection). -- Helen Whincup, Lecturer in Social Work, Faculty of Applied Social Science, University of Stirling This book is built on longstanding knowledge and experience. It will provide professionals a suite of resources and ideas that can inform their own practice and add to the emotional toolkit of our most vulnerable young people as they journey through their lives. -- Paul Hunter, Head Teacher, St. Catherine's R.C. Primary School, Edinburgh
