Do you currently work with or have you previously worked with young people under the age of 18? If so, I am looking for Midlands based practitioners who would like to participate in a research study which explores counsellor/psychotherapist personal experiences of inter-agency working in safeguarding and child protection.

Inter-agency working is viewed as a fundamental activity where professionals across a range of disciplines work together to promote keeping children and young people safe and contribute towards their wider well being. Therefore, by taking part in this research, you will be contributing towards the development of a growing evidence base regarding this highly significant area of professional practice.

To participate in this study, you must be:

  • Currently working with or have historically worked with children/young people aged under 18
  • Be willing to take part in a semi-structured face to face interview that will last around 60 minutes

This research has received Ethical Approval from the University of Birmingham Humanities and Social Sciences Ethical Review Committee for MSc. Dissertation projects.

If you would like to take part or would like further information, please email me at

Thank you,
