Code: SC/20/0031 MRC webinar - Child and Family Welfare Services: Where Do We Go Next? (time to be confirmed)

As we emerge from the current crisis, we must rethink how we resource and deliver child and family welfare services. This must start with a better understanding of
the current national policy environment and the pressures faced by those working to protect and
support children and families. Drawing on research carried out for his new book, Dr Carl Purcell will share his thoughts on national policies
that provide the context for contemporary social work with children and families. He suggests that, moving
forward, we need to ask:
• What is the relationship between family support and child protection services?
• How can social workers work alongside other agencies to better identify and support families who need more support?
Dr Carl Purcell is a researcher working in the Health and Social Care Workforce Research Unit, part of the Policy Institute at King’s College London. He previously worked for 11 years in a variety of children’s services
policy roles in three London local authorities.
Carl’s research has involved interviews with prominent policymakers including government ministers, civil servants, local authority directors and the leaders of
children’s charities.

Code: SC/21/0001 Understanding and intervening in emotional abuse and neglect - 3 day course

The harm to children which arises from emotional abuse and neglect is interlinked and sometimes it is difficult to separate the two. While there are often visible signs of neglect, practitioners report emotional abuse can be hard to evidence. It can be a challenge to help parents and caregivers understand what emotional abuse is. Thinking about how to have conversations with parents and carers, helping them see how the effects of emotional abuse and neglect are cumulative, and then enabling them to make changes, can be complex. The day will give time to think though different ideas, using the experience of the participants to create new understanding and practice.

Code: SC/20/0032 MRC webinar - Parental Alienation in the Family Courts

Dr Adrienne Barnett was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 1981 and practised for over 30 years, for most of which she
specialised in Family Law, primarily representing parents and children in serious care cases and in private law cases involving
allegations of domestic abuse. Adrienne is now a Senior Lecturer in Law at Brunel University London. Her specialist area of research is
domestic abuse and the family courts, including parental alienation. She has published widely and presented papers at numerous
academic and professional conferences in the UK and abroad. In this webinar, Adrienne will discuss the emergence and
development of parental alienation (PA) in England and Wales.
Shewill consider the background into which PA first appeared in private law proceedings concerning children in England and Wales, and
examine how it progressed in the case law through the changing political and discursive context of private family law. She notes a
clear pattern of PA being raised in family proceedings and in political and popular arenas in response to concerns about and
measures to address domestic abuse. The case law revealed a high incidence of domestic abuse perpetrated by parents (principally
fathers) who were claiming that the resident parents (principally mothers) had alienated the children against them, which raises
questions about the purpose of PA.

While PA has had a chequered history and is not without its critics, it has become part of the discursive repertoire of current family law,
with increasingly harsh consequences for women and children.
