Neglected teenagers; research, policy and practice

Wednesday 4 February 2015, 1.30PM to 4.30pm

Speaker(s): Professor Mike Stein

A qualified social worker, Professor Stein has worked as a probation officer, a senior child care officer and an area manager in a social services department. For the past 30 years he has been researching the problems and challenges faced by young people leaving care, and since the 1990’s, the experiences of vulnerable young people, including young people running away from home and care and maltreated and neglected teenagers.

We are delighted to welcome Mike back to MRC to present some of his most recent research. Mike will be joined by Phil Raws, Senior Researcher with The Children's Society, who will talk about working with young people to counter the effects of neglect. Young people will also be present to talk about their experiences of support. 

For Continuous Professional Development purposes we map our seminars against The College of Social Work's Professional Capabilities Framework and The Health and Care Professionals Council Standards of Proficiency.

You may therefore find this document helpful for your CPD recording.
