The MRC Critical and Reflective Practice Forum has run for 15 years, and brings together practitioners and managers from across London and the South East. This unique forum works as a ‘book group’, looking at articles, research papers and policy documents, which are
circulated beforehand to members, and considers their implications for practice.
Topics are selected by the group but, recently, have included: a critical appraisal of the concept of disguisedcompliance; how we engage fathers; the impact of Covid-19; and pre-birth assessments.
