  • Editorial: Social Work Today – Fit and Agile Practice
    • Authors: Golightley M; Holloway M.
      Pages: 555 - 558
      Abstract: The developed world today is full of exhortations to ‘work smarter, not harder’.11 Lifestyle manuals promise that learning to manage our daily lives differently will dramatically improve our happiness and business inspiration courses promise enhanced productivity on top. Ironically, the quest for more efficient working practices stems, in no small part, from the impact of other developments in the modern home and workplace: e-mail overload, the frequency of alerts on mobile phones, time spent on social media and browsing the Internet for those very products and leisure experiences that promise to make our lives easier, refresh the spirit and put us at the top of our game. Unsurprisingly, social work, whether in practice or education, is also drawn to this maxim as the elixir for many, if not all, of our current woes. Algorithms to target services, virtual classrooms and online training courses with built-in assessment, flexible use of office spaces, meeting planners and webinars, even robot care: all these purport to make the social work enterprise a smart player in the modern world.

  • Seeking Solitude and Distance from Others: Children’s Social Workers’
           Agile Working Practices and Experiences beyond the Office
    • Authors: Jeyasingham D.
      Pages: 559 - 576
      Abstract: AbstractAgile working (flexibility around practitioners’ roles and the location and time of work) is increasingly common across local authority social work in the UK but there is little evidence about the practices it entails, with the small amount of existing research concerned largely with its impact on office environments. This article presents findings from a qualitative exploratory study of eleven social workers’ practices and experiences when engaged in agile working away from office spaces. Data were generated through practitioner diaries, photographs elicited from practitioners and semi-structured interviews, and were analysed using a grounded theory approach. The study found practitioners engaged in agile working in a wide range of domestic, leisure and formal work environments across the public–private continuum. This gave them superficial control over how they worked, in particular the freedom to work in solitude and establish distance between themselves and perceived demands from service users and other practitioners. However, agile working also involved a wider range of material practices and affective experiences for practitioners. These changes provoke questions about data security, increased visibility and unanticipated encounters in public spaces, and the shifting relationship between information-management work and elements of practice involving face-to-face interaction with others.

  • An Evaluation of an Inter-Disciplinary Training Programme for
           Professionals to Support Children and Their Families Who Have Been
           Sexually Abused Online
    • Authors: Bond E; Dogaru C.
      Pages: 577 - 594
      Abstract: AbstractThe psychological consequences of child sexual abuse on children’s mental health and emotional well-being are well documented, and the importance of safeguarding training for professionals working with children and young people unequivocal. Effective support for children who have been sexually abused online is essential to enable them to progress towards recovery. Yet many professionals feel they lack knowledge and understanding of how best to work with children who have been sexually abused online. This study therefore evaluates the outcomes of a short inter-professional training course designed to develop professionals’ competence and confidence when responding to the needs of children and their families after online sexual abuse. Participants (n = 114) were recruited on a voluntary basis from a range of professional backgrounds, including some teaching and social work students in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The questionnaire collected both quantitative and qualitative data. There were consistent, statistically significant improvements in the professionals’ views on their knowledge of the subject, their ability to assess online risk and their confidence levels after completing the training course. The feedback from the participants suggested that the learning tools adopted in the training were highly appropriate and that the inter-professional delivery was a key aspect to the positive learning experience. This study suggests that multidisciplinary training, combined with real-life case studies, can be highly effective in improving knowledge and understanding of online Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (CSEA), thereby improving professionals’ confidence in supporting children, young people and their families. The need for and the importance of inter-professional training are highlighted.

  • Inter-Professional Caring for Children Who Are Relatives of Cancer
           Patients in Palliative Care: Perspectives of Doctors and Social Workers
    • Authors: Karidar H; Glasdam S.
      Pages: 595 - 614
      Abstract: AbstractA palliative cancer diagnosis in a parent has a major impact on many aspects of patients’ children. This article aims to explore how doctors and social workers met children as relatives of a parent with cancer in order to understand the possibilities and difficulties in supporting children in specialised palliative homecare in Sweden. Qualitative, semi-structured interviews of doctors and social workers were conducted, inspired by Bourdieu. The findings showed that professionals had limited contact with patients’ children. Mono- and inter-professional meetings were organising structures for working days of doctors and social workers. Due to hierarchy positions, doctors often set the agenda in inter-professional teamwork. Doctors seldom met patients’ children, only when information about parents’ cancer diseases were needed. Social workers were responsible for psycho-social issues, but mostly only special vulnerable families and their children were prioritised. Meetings between children and professionals were conditional on the parents’ permission and, even if permission was given, meetings seldom took place. Doctors and social workers were subject to the structural frame and a medical logic, which limited their interactions with children of the patients. Children were dependent on both their parents and professionals, who had the power to include or exclude them from parents’ illness situation.

  • Convenient Yet Neglected: The Role of Grandparent Kinship Carers
    • Authors: Zuchowski I; Gair S, Henderson D, et al.
      Pages: 615 - 632
      Abstract: AbstractGrandparents are increasingly involved in the care and protection of grandchildren. The qualitative Australian study reported here explored how contact between grandparents and their grandchildren could be optimised after child-safety concerns. Interviews and focus groups with seventy-seven participants were undertaken in 2016. In total, fifty-one grandparents and aunties in grand parenting roles, twelve parents, six foster-carers and eight child-protection workers participated in this study. Of the fifty-one participants in grandparent roles, twenty were kinship carers. This article specifically reports on emerging findings regarding grandparents as kinship carers. Key findings reveal that many grandparents were willing to step into the carer role and many wanted to stay connected to grandchildren, although, overall, they received little support. Findings identified the stresses and the fragility of the care arrangements and that at times providing kinship care could endanger carers. Overall, findings point to a perceived notion of kinship care implemented as a cost-effective alternative to foster-care that leaves grandparents without the required support and resources. It is recommended here that grandparents receive greater recognition as kinship carers, and that child-protection systems increase family-inclusive practices that provide better support and resources to kinship carers.

  • Outcomes for Permanence and Stability for Children in Care in Ireland:
           Implications for Practice
    • Authors: Devaney C; McGregor C, Moran L.
      Pages: 633 - 652
      Abstract: AbstractThis paper reports on a qualitative study of outcomes for permanence and stability for children in long-term care in Ireland. The aim of this research was to inform social work practitioners on how to enhance stability and permanence for children and to inform decision making and report writing for children in care. The research was designed and delivered in partnership with social work practitioners in the relevant areas. Drawing from the significant literature on this area the main factors impacting on permanence and stability are summarised and presented in terms of intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Biographical narrative interviews were conducted with twenty-seven participants (children and young people, parents and foster parents). This paper reports how, amongst a complex array of findings, three themes most linked to affect permanence and stability were found to be Relationships, Communication and Social Support. Underpinning these, the importance of Continuity was significant. Based on these findings, recommendations and practice guidance for social workers were developed in partnership with the Irish statutory Child and Family Agency and are summarised in the Conclusion.

  • Challenging the Normative Truth Logic in the Politics of Apology: A Quest
           for Recognition
    • Authors: De Wilde L; Roets G, Vanobbergen B.
      Pages: 653 - 669
      Abstract: AbstractIn recent years, the historical abuse perpetrated against children in residential child-welfare and protection services has increasingly been perceived as a public concern. In the context of this European and global development, several formal inquiries commissioned by authorities into the alleged historical abuse of children in social work services were perceived as a political priority to repair human injustices, and were set up as an attempt to come to terms with the failure of social welfare policies and services in the past. The number of official public apologies has continued to increase since the turn of the century. In this article, we radically question the normative truth logic that is at stake in these politics of apology as a way to give recognition on both an individual and a collective level, and argue that social work needs to critically deal with its own confusing history, with which it is interwoven, to be able to clarify what contemporary social work represents.

  • Internationally Trafficked Men in the USA: Experiences and Recommendations
           for Mental Health Professionals
    • Authors: Hodge D.
      Pages: 670 - 685
      Abstract: AbstractThe purpose of this study is to delineate the experiences and recommendations of internationally trafficked men—one of the most overlooked subgroups among survivors of human trafficking. To conduct this qualitative study, a hybrid purposive/snowball sampling strategy was used to recruit men (N = 21) who were trafficked into the USA. A post-positivist epistemological perspective informed an interpretive content analysis of the data. The results indicated that respondents were trafficked from either Latin America or Asia, with forced labour representing the most common type of exploitation. Analyses yielded an array of recommendations regarding: (i) services needed to assist victims escape traffickers and (ii) strategies that mental health professionals might implement to assist victims overcome the trauma associated with being trafficked. The results suggest male trafficking victims have significant needs and professionals who work with victims in various capacities can benefit by implementing survivors’ recommendations.

  • Social Work and Women’s Mental Health: Does Trauma Theory Provide a
           Useful Framework'
    • Authors: Tseris E.
      Pages: 686 - 703
      Abstract: AbstractTrauma theory has been positioned as a helpful framework for social workers to utilise when working with women presenting to mental health services. In particular, the trauma concept has been praised for its ability to acknowledge the social and relational determinants of women’s mental health presentations and to challenge the dominance of a biomedical framework for understanding emotional distress. On the other hand, trauma approaches have been critiqued for being overly deficit-oriented and for failing to adequately incorporate a feminist analysis of gender inequality. This article presents qualitative research conducted with twelve mental health social workers in Australia reporting on their use of trauma theory when working with adolescent women who have experienced child abuse within a family context. Analysis found that the trauma concept was in some cases applied in a paternalistic manner that medicalised young women’s distress and minimised issues of gender inequality. However, other participants described trauma work with young women as a form of feminist activism. This study is significant because it points towards the existence of multiple and competing trauma perspectives currently informing social work practice.

  • African Diasporan Experiences of US Police Violence: An Exploration of
           Identity and Counter-Narratives
    • Authors: Nordberg A; Meshesha B.
      Pages: 704 - 721
      Abstract: AbstractPolice violence in the USA disproportionately impacts black Americans. However, most research exploring minority experiences assumes black ethnicity is monolithic and therefore elides experiences of African immigrants to the USA—a growing subpopulation. This interpretative phenomenological analytic study sought to capture and understand the views of African diasporans in the USA of police violence through open-ended interviews with ten adult participants. We used critical race theory as the primary conceptual lens and found four themes: otherness, perception of police, civic engagement and systemic racism. The results offer a counter-narrative that complicates normative categorisation of race in the USA. This work offers activists and social work practitioners a more nuanced understanding of racialised identity, and the concomitant vulnerabilities and resiliencies of African diasporans in the USA.

  • Citizenship Status Matters: A Social Factor Influencing Outness among a
           Diverse National Sample of LGBT Individuals
    • Authors: Stanton M; Werkmeister Rozas L, Asencio M.
      Pages: 722 - 741
      Abstract: AbstractThere is a notable dearth of quantitative studies that examine the relationship between citizenship status and one’s ability to live as openly lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender (LGBT) (i.e. be ‘out’). While outness should not be prescribed as a normative or healthy sexual expression and identity, it is an option for sexual expression that can be influenced by the state. Utilising data from the Social Justice Sexuality Project, which surveyed a diverse sample of LGBT individuals within the USA, we tested whether ‘outness’, in public and private spheres, was correlated with citizenship status. Applying critical realism theory and intersectionality, we hypothesised that increased political and social vulnerability, as marked by citizenship status, may deter outness. Hierarchical linear modelling was used to estimate fixed effects. Both naturalised citizens and non-citizens were less likely than born US citizens to be out to private and public spheres controlling for demographic and state-level variables. These findings suggest that a precarious citizenship status may serve to constrict the options for social expression for LGBT individuals and identify an intersection of experiences that can be targeted by anti-oppressive macro practice. Additionally, our results alert micro practitioners to the social and structural factors that may limit sexuality disclosure.

  • Chinese Immigrant Mothers Negotiating Family and Career: Intersectionality
           and the Role of Social Support
    • Authors: Leung V; Zhu Y, Peng H, et al.
      Pages: 742 - 761
      Abstract: AbstractUsing an intersectional approach, this study examines Chinese immigrant mothers’ negotiation between career and family and the role of social support. Based on eight individual interviews with Chinese immigrant mothers in Toronto, we found that their employment opportunities were highly limited by the intersection of immigration status and gender. A model is proposed to explain the effect of various factors on the mothers’ career decisions. Three core factors—employment difficulties, child-care responsibility and financial need—had a major influence on the mothers’ cost-and-benefit analyses when they made their career decisions. Furthermore, the adequacy and effectiveness of the mothers’ social and community support were affected by their immigration status. Class differences and the association between career decisions and integration are also discussed. The findings suggest that immigrant mothers experience a unique situation because of the intersectionality of their multiple identities. Researchers and community organisations should recognise the distinct circumstances and needs of this group in order to achieve comprehensive understanding and provide appropriate services.

  • A Study of Data Continuity in Adult Social Care Services
    • Authors: Chotvijit S; Thiarai M, Jarvis S.
      Pages: 762 - 786
      Abstract: AbstractFinancial challenges in adult social care services are a considerable concern for UK government. With an ageing population, UK local authorities were reported to have spent £168 million more than budgeted in 2015–16 and had struggled to maintain care quality and manage unprecedented demand. We report on the assessment process employed in adult social care in Birmingham, the UK’s second largest city, and use data-analytic methods to examine the flow and continuity of data from referral, through the assessment process, to the resulting service provision. We identify the decision-making points and the data recorded for service users throughout the workflow. Data are derived from the local government social care system in Birmingham and span 2013–16. Findings highlight the complexity of the social care system, the fragmentation of the data and the discontinuity of data flow within the system. This data analysis resulted from a two-year study commissioned by Birmingham City Council as part of the ‘case for change’ following several poor Ofsted reports. Our commission was to understand what could be ascertained from a data-led investigation, independently of how the data were collected and used. This research establishes the foundation for service improvement and potential resource savings.

  • A Study of Practitioner–Service User Relationships in Social Work
    • Authors: Hood R; Brent M, Abbott S, et al.
      Pages: 787 - 805
      Abstract: Abstract`This paper reports on findings from a qualitative study of practitioner–service user relationships in social work. The research aimed to identify social workers’ personal constructs of their relationships with service users and explore how these constructs differed across roles and settings. A qualitative methodology employing a variation on role repertory grid techniques was used to carry out semi-structured interviews with social workers. Twenty-five social workers from seven different practice settings were interviewed and altogether identified over 200 personal constructs. The research team undertook a thematic analysis of these constructs along with their explanation and discussion in interview transcripts. The results identified twenty-five superordinate constructs within ten core themes, which reflected practitioners’ experience of relationships, their systemic context, along with dynamics of power and collaboration. The constructs were often found to contrast a positive or preferred attribute of relationships with a more negative or challenging attribute, although the reality of relationships was often found to be complex and ambiguous. Some implications are explored for current theories of relationship-based practice in social work.

  • Investigating Everyday Life in a Modernist Public Housing Scheme: The
           Implications of Residents’ Understandings of Well-Being and Welfare for
           Social Work
    • Authors: Hicks S; Lewis C.
      Pages: 806 - 823
      Abstract: AbstractThis article examines the concerns of residents living in a modernist social-housing scheme in Edinburgh, Scotland, chosen as a focus because the architects’ designs were originally intended to foster better community, well-being and welfare. After reviewing literature on community and social work, the article outlines the ethnographic approach used in this research, the purpose of which was to pay close attention to the ways in which residents’ well-being and welfare concerns arise in situ. Data were collected in 2016 via semi-structured interviews with seventeen residents, three of whom also took part in diary-elicited discussions and seven in walking tours of the community. These methods were used to elicit sensory and spatial aspects of respondents’ experiences. The article outlines findings relating to residents’ well-being and welfare concerns and goes on to discuss community relations, the association of stigma and social welfare and, finally, residents’ responses to those in need of community or social work support. Addressing social class and belonging, the complexities of attachment to place and how environment contributes to the emergence of relative welfare of residents, the article considers the implications for social work of an emplaced understanding of well-being and welfare.

  • Displaying Social Work through Objects
    • Authors: Doel M.
      Pages: 824 - 841
      Abstract: This article examines the possibility of demonstrating social work through a collection of objects. It presents the experience of a web-based project, Social Work in 40 Objects, which aimed to provide an alternative approach to understanding social work—through display rather than definition and description. The project was experimental, with no presumption that it would be possible to express the abstraction of social work through the materiality of objects. An open, online ‘donation’ process successfully elicited 127 objects from people across twenty-five countries and five continents. The process by which the objects were collected is discussed, with the author cast in the role of curator of a Virtual Exhibition of social work. Theories from material culture and museum ethnography are introduced to understand the broader significance of stuff, its relevance to social work and the power of metonymy and metaphor. Examples of donated objects are used to consider their ability to convey the complexities of social work. An object typology is suggested, derived from the modes of meaning ascribed to the objects in the collection. The project uncovered the importance of the stories underpinning the objects via explanatory plaques, and the significance of the relationship between object, person and profession in creating charged objects.
