This learning object is designed to make you aware of these personal values and how they might impact on your practice. This learning object explores the way that personal values can effect the way you deal with families and seeks to help make practitioners aware of the impact and implications that this can have. You will be asked to capture your initial thoughts relating to 3 case study images depicting different aspects of family life.

This object also contains a self-assessment section where you can test how far you have assimilated the key messages from this learning object.
This report is part of a series by Action for Children on the overriding importance of intervening as early as possible to support the most vulnerable children and their families.
