  • Strengthening social work services in the health sectors of Low- and
           Middle-Income Countries: Taking lessons from social work actions/inactions
           in Covid-19 response in Nigeria

    • Authors: Prince Agwu
      Abstract: The social work profession is growing in many low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). In Nigeria, the profession recently got backed by an act of law, yet with persisting grey areas about its roles and responsibilities in the health sector, as well as many other sectors. The relegation of social work in containing Covid-19, and generally in Nigeria’s health sector, is largely lamented by published studies. As similar countries to Nigeria face this same challenge, there is a need to reflect on the limited roles of social work in health and what can be done to address this. A global agenda in the ‘Health in All Policies’ (HiAP) aligns with the need to consolidate social care and justice in healthcare. This commentary, through a review of literature and contextual experience, recommends a tripartite approach (union, community presence, and documented protocol), in scaling up social work presence in contexts where they struggle for identity

  • The Views of Parents Subject to Child Protection Investigation for their
           Child or Children with Disabilities: An Exploratory Qualitative Study

    • Authors: Susan Flynn
      Abstract: The views and experiences of parents subject to child protection processes are instrumental for developing rigorous, effective and compassionate child protection practice. Simultaneously, children with disabilities are well established to experience gravely heightened risk of abuse and neglect above their non-disabled peers. Here unique and additional impediments to effectual safeguarding practice for children with disabilities are also documented. Even so, there is virtually no research that focuses on the views and experiences of parents of children with disabilities, who were subject to child protection processes, regarding their parenting of those children. With the safety and welfare of children with disabilities at stake, it is suggested that these parental views are critical to gather and comprehend. This article presents qualitative research findings of a study that conducted semi-structured interviews with a sample of parents of children with disabilities in Britain and Ireland. Parental accounts reveal key dimensions of being subject to child protection processes, such as avoidable experiences of emotional adversity, and critical learning arising from interactions with child protection procedures and systems. The article concludes with evidence-based reflections on the utmost importance of emotionally sensitive, collaborative child protection work with parents.
