|Abstract: ||Emotional and behavioural difficulties of a sample of children and young people
were identified at the point of entry to local authority care by analysis of social
work case files. The files indicated high levels of need, including that in children
aged under 5. Bedwetting was identified as an important issue related to the
physical health and emotional well-being of looked-after children. There was an
association between bedwetting and emotional and behavioural problems.
Analysis of placement types at entry to care showed that significantly more boys
than girls were first placed in residential care.|
