Child and family practitioners' understanding of child development: lessons learnt from a small sample of serious case reviews

The aim of the study is to provide an in depth exploration of a small number of serious case reviews to consider how the knowledge that practitioners, and especially social workers, have on child development might have had an impact on the case and on outcomes for the children.

Six serious case reviews were selected from thirty three of the available serious case reviews which had been completed in 2009 or 2010.
