McGregor, Caroline, & Devaney, Carmel. (2020). A Framework to Inform Protective Support and Supportive Protection in Child Protection and Welfare Practice and Supervision, Social Sciences,9(4), 43, DOI: 10.3390/socsci9040043
In this article, our intention is to provide an in-depth framework to inform the management of the inevitable complexity of day-to-day practice and supervision in child protection and welfare. It is based on what is now well evidenced about child protection and welfare literature in relation to risk, relationships, family support, supervision, and professional development. Using Ireland as a case example for illustration and application, we introduce an emerging framework based on a dualism of protective support and supportive protection developed in previous work. We avail of Bronfenbrenner s bio-ecological framework and network theories to progress this ongoing work in progress to inform social work and social care practice and supervision in a global context as and where appropriate. We emphasize the importance of context specific approaches, the relevance of range of actors, practitioner and supervisor expertise through experience, and proactive partnership based engagement with children, families, and relevant communities in all aspects of service delivery, including evaluation. We reflect on the challenges and possible obstacles to how such a framework can inform practice and supervision. We argue that practitioners can best activate and apply the framework using a practice research approach
