Child Focused Child Protection Conferences

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Child protection conferences have a long history of attempting to become more child-focused. Have they succeeded? This webinar presented findings from a qualitative study of child protection conferences in England. A four-part conceptualization of child-focused practice was used to analyze practice in conferences addressing child neglect. The webinar explored key findings from the study regarding: children’s participation; child-focused decision making and planning; the importance of pre-conference work with children and families; and the central role of the conference chair.

The webinar was organized by the Connect Centre for International Research on Interpersonal Violence and Harm, University of Central Lancashire.
