Living and learning together: conference report: August 2004

The General Social Care Council (GSCC) and Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) share a commitment to putting service users and carers at the heart of all aspects of social work and social care, including social work education. As part of this commitment, the GSCC and SCIE held a joint conference in November 2003, to promote and share different approaches to service user and carer involvement in social work education and training. This report provides a summary of the content of the conference, an analysis of lessons learnt and some suggestions and practical tips about putting this into practice effectively. We hope it will contribute to further developing knowledge and dissemination of good practice in this area.

Therapeutic approaches to social work in residential child care settings

Following a regional review of residential child care in 2007, the five health and social care (HSC) Trusts in Northern Ireland introduced 'therapeutic approaches' in a number of children's homes and in the regional secure units. The approaches were used to help staff understand how trauma effects children and young people. This report gives the results of an evaluation of these approaches. The five approaches evaluated were Sanctuary, CARE (Children and Residential Experiences), Social pedagogy, ARC (Attachment, Self-regulation and Competency) and MAP (Model of Attachment Practice). The evaluation looked at the evidence for each of the chosen models and explored their similarities and differences. It also gathered the experiences of key stakeholders – including managers, staff and young people – of using the models and their effects. The report also gives the results of an analysis of the patterns in reporting untoward incidents. Staff reported that the training did improve their practice and young people noticed a improved 'atmosphere'. The report is available as a pdf document and online resource.
