This talk by Dr Kresta M. Sørensen (University of Copenhagen) will focus on child participation. It will explore the difficulties in ensuring child participation in statutory case work from different perspectives with special focus on the children’s’ perspective. She will present stop-motion films about how children view their meetings with social workers. The films were produced as part of a research project on children in foster care. The data were collected using panels of children at the age of 10-13 years. Dr Sørensen will describe different methodological approaches to ensure child participation and discuss the Lundy model in relation to how the child panels were conducted.

This event is part of Contemporary issues and debates in social work education, research and practice.
