This chapter continues the exploration of skills in child-centred practice through considering some further key elements such as empowerment, the role of participation in decision making and consultation. There is a particular focus on the role of advocacy in social work and on working with children’s advocates. This highlights the differences in role between the social work focus on best interests and the advocacy focus on ‘voicing’. It draws on some of the author’s research findings about social work and advocacy.
