Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis

Abstract

This dissertation looks at the experiences of frontline child protection staff who participated in a group process of reflective practice. In particular, it aims to find out: (a) whether staff involvement in the practice discussion groups improved caseworkers’ ability to demonstrate reflective practice in casework intervention; (b) whether involvement in practice discussion groups increased staff members’ confidence in decision making; and (c) whether there was a link between the participation in practice discussion groups and staff professional development (including individual supervision sessions) and client interventions.
