Child protection by child and family guidance workers

  • J. E. Oliver (a1)
Extract

In 1990 I saw every member of the Child and Family Guidance Service within the Swindon Health Authority to discuss children from their last (unselected) six or 12 families in relation to child protection issues. All 19 professionals were part-time workers, some only doing three, two, or one sessions per week of child and family guidance work. They were seven psychiatrists (consultants and a senior registrar), two psychologists, six psychiatric social workers (including family therapists), and four specialised therapists (family, child psychotherapy, nurture-group and art). There were 14 female and five male professionals.
