Blame, Culture and Child Protection
In recent years child protection issues have dominated media and public discourse in the UK. This book offers a unique perspective, giving voice to social workers and their experiences of working within a profession which has become increasingly embedded in a culture of blame. Exploring how statutory child protection agencies function, Leigh reveals how 'culture' can significantly affect the way in which social work is practiced. Providing a comparative analysis between the UK and Belgium, Leigh uses autho-ethnography, observation and in-depth interviews to illuminate the differences between the social worker settings and how their professional and social identities are formed, by examining interactions and affected atmospheres. This book reveals how practitioners perceive themselves differently in these national settings and the impact this has on the way they view their identity as well as the work they carry out with children and families. Providing a compelling critique of the social work landscape, Leigh's enquiry into social work, identity and organisations calls for mutual understanding and respect, rather than a culture of blame.
