Working during the Covid 19 Pandemic

I’m sure that we can all safely say that we didn’t see the pandemic having such a profound effect on our work and home lives. With the project, it initially felt that we were losing momentum, and that all the hard work of the past year was not going to be maintained. But we have adapted and found new ways of working, mirroring what is happening in social work across all fields.

The importance of reflective practice

Reflective practice has been a cornerstone of the Effective Child Protection project from the outset.  The Practice Mentor has used individual mentoring and reflective practice groups to develop the capacity of workers to put some of the principles of Effective Child Protection into practice.  This has worked very well for the project and the development of the role of the Practice Mentor.
