Soft is hardest: leading for learning in child protection services following a child fatality

Turnell, Andrew, Munro, Eileen and Murphy, Terry (2013) Soft is hardest: leading for learning in child protection services following a child fatality. Child Welfare, 92 (2). pp. 199-216. ISSN 0009-4021

Abstract

The way in which a child protection agency responds to a child fatality always has a strong influence on subsequent practice. Very often, organizational responses and child death reviews are punitive and escalate an already anxious and defensive organizational culture. This paper outlines an alternative approach that not only helps staff to manage their emotional responses but also encourages and prioritizes a learning culture within the organization throughout the crisis and in the longer term.
