dc.description.abstractIntegrated working for outcomes is complex and challenging in theory and practice. Yet, outcomes and integrated working are central to the policy goals for children and families in Ireland. In this article, the authors present two main arguments: first, that reflective practice offers a useful general methodology for engaging with the theoretical and practical challenges of integrated working for outcomes; and second, reflective practice as a specific approach can help achieve the balance between policy and services blueprints and the realities of practice, a necessity in achieving better outcomes for children. The authors' recent involvement in policy development work in Ireland is drawn on to illustrate the arguments.
