Item Type:Article
Additional Information:Advocacy for children and young people is relatively recent. Mindful of the lack of analysis about whether professional status enhances the role of advocacy, this paper consolidates an argument about the impact of problemitising advocacy as unprofessional. The paper argues for a committed practitioner model which characterises expert practice in a way that helps to develop an understanding of advocacy practice. This is seen as the most helpful way of creating dialogue and promoting a culture of advocacy.
