It shows how to tackle this often embarrassing issue in a positive way and includes helpful picture narratives, examples of diary sheets for behaviour analysis and practical exercises that can be carried out at home. It also explains what to do if a child ingests faeces and how to deal with persistent smearing. Featuring the voices of parents, the book helps families, school staff and social workers feel confident in identifying the causes of smearing and enables them to carry out preventative approaches.
