School of Social Work seminar series
The Faculty of Health and Social Care Sciences' School of Social Work is delighted to present a series of seminars at its Kingston Hill Campus. The seminars are delivered by leading national and international researchers, policy makers and commentators and focus on issues of topical and contemporary importance. The seminars are open to all staff and students at Kingston University and at St George's, University of London, staff in local social services in the statutory, voluntary and private sectors, and to service users and carers and their organisations who assist with the School's social work education programmes.
The sixteenth seminar in this series will be presented by qualified social worker Dr Harriet Ward, Professor of Child and Family Research and the founding director of the Centre for Child and Family Research at Loughborough University. This seminar will be the first public presentation of her major new research on the highly topical issue of infants and significant harm.
Dr Harriet Ward has a long-standing record as one of the UK's foremost researchers on children's social care, and her research is relevant to all professionals who work with children and families. Dr Ward was the lead for the national Looked After Children research programme from 1993 until 2001, which has been a highly influential contribution to government policy and practice in the UK and abroad.
