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

In this seminar, Professor Cree and Dr Morrison share findings from the Talking and Listening to Children (TLC) research. This is a UK-wide study on social workers' communication with children. Funded by the ESRC, the research took place between 2013 and 2016.

It began with the realisation that social workers have often been criticised in child abuse inquiries for not taking enough account of children's views and for sometimes failing even to see children. Using ethnography and video stimulated recall, the research makes a new contribution to knowledge on 'real time' social work practice. The seminar focuses on the ethnographic phase of the research and explores the key findings that emerged.
