The wishes and feelings of and continuing role for the family in the child’s life are addressed in Chapter 5, and the range of possible placements is covered in Chapter 6. It cannot be over-emphasized that this division is to a considerable extent an artificial one, designed to help the reader to make sense of the separate elements. In practice, the issues addressed in these three chapters are likely to arise simultaneously, assuming different priorities according to the circumstances of the individual case.
