Event Details

Brigid Featherstone,

Professor of Social Care,

Faculty of Health & Social Care: The Open University

 

The seminar will draw from the presenter’s own research and that of others to explore the barriers to and supports for engaging parents.  It will be argued that it is an ethical imperative and in the best interests of children to treat the engagement of parents with the utmost seriousness.

Brigid Featherstone is Professor of Social Care at the Open University. She has extensive experience of researching the perspectives of mothers and fathers on child protection processes. She is the co-author (with Sue White and Kate Morris) of Re-imagining child protection: towards humane social work with families which will be published by Policy Press in April 2014. Her previous books include Contemporary Fathering: Theory, Policy and Practice published by Policy Press in 2009.
