How approaches to qualitative research can support the analysis in Serious Case Reviews: LiPP SCR masterclasses

Part of Safeguarding children

This is one of a series of four Learning into Practice Project Masterclasses produced by the NSPCC and SCIE. The four masterclasses aim to introduce key ideas from the different fields and enable Serious Case Review reviewers to consider their relevance. Specifically focusing on approaches to qualitative research to support serious case reviews, this masterclass introduces the basic theoretical and methodological approaches to producing knowledge in the social sciences and raises awareness of a broad range of debates that constitute these approaches. It explains how to make connections between the methodological and epistemological issues involved in conducting social scientific research and the report authors’ own practice and how to reflect on the social systems that produce particular behaviours. Key topics covered include: the moral and social context of SCRs; how culture affects what we can think and what we say; examples from research on professional practice and organisational systems; and sharing knowledge in complex organisational systems.
