This is the first of three episodes in a seminar series entitled, 'Critical perspectives on child protection'.

In this seminar, Professor Marie Connolly, shares her experiences of child welfare reform efforts in Australia and New Zealand. Situating these reforms within a broader frame of political change across the public sector, she discusses the ways in which reform occurs within a dynamic and quickly changing environment.

She explores what she considers are important elements supporting successful reform, including building knowledge frameworks that are accessible to practitioners, creating service pathways that are more responsive to the needs of children and families, developing a child-centred organisational culture, and nurturing organisational leadership around a coherent vision.
