Making Research Count (MRC) is a university-based research dissemination network that seeks to build the links between research, policy and practice. The MRC Critical and Reflective Practice group, at King’s College London, is a well-established forum that provides an opportunity to: • Identify and discuss key areas of emerging social work research; • Explore the implications of major policy documents for practice; • Debate and discuss key areas in contemporary social work with colleagues from across London.
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 have included: contextual safeguarding; supervision and the meaning of professional leadership; anti oppressive practice; professional resilience; the nature of reflective practice; the impact of austerity and poverty; the efficacy of the safeguarding and care systems; and implications for social work of new ways of working.
