Book Review: Resettling Homeless People: Theory and Practice

Resettling Homeless People: Theory and Practice
Mike Seal, Russell House Publishing
ISBN 1903855659, £18.95


This book is an excellent and comprehensive treatment of what makes
for successful and sustainable resettlement of homeless people,
writes Russell Holland.

It intelligently bridges the gap between a serious academic
discussion of resettlement and realistic and practical solutions.
It deserves to be the key textbook on resettlement and has a place
on any homeless reading list. As such it will be of interest and is
strongly recommended to practitioners, policy-makers, students and
anyone with an interest in resettlement and homelessness.

Seal provides clear and concise definitions of resettlement and the
implications that this has in practice. In the process he has
developed a relevant and much needed model for working with
homeless people taking into account all of their needs. It is a
highly practical guide covering everything needed and as such could
easily be incorporated into training sessions.

Russell Holland works with homelessness charities and is a
trainee barrister
