Approaching the task:

Developing a narrative structure
When undertaking critical thinking in relation to children, ask simple questions; what’s the concern in the case review?
Whose story is this?
Who is involved in the case?
What role do those involved take?
What happens before/after the case review?
What is the theoretical framework?
What is the national context?

Make a specific choice e.g. a particular child/family
Review a series of organizational policies
Analyse national priorities and policies
What are the consequences of policy on practice?
What approach do you take?

What theoretical grounding/perspective will this be based in?
Structural theories of explanation – Marxism
Post – structuralism
Social constructionism

Keep a reflective diary
Make notes relating to any strategies, actions or approaches you have implemented as a result of the findings of the case review.
Use ASPIRE to help you to order your thoughts

What resources did you use?
Did you make a referral? If yes, to what organisation?
Reflect on how the child presented and on any concerns that you had.
What happened?
Is there a problem? How did you identify it?

Suggested examples for discussion

How is the local context informed by the national policy context? What are the historical antecedents? How are changes to practise enforced by government regulators?

The rights of the child versus wider social expectations; the paramountcy principle.

Early interference or intervention? Are we at risk of pathologizing generations of, probably, poor children? If we intervene early how can we monitor the consequences of our actions in later life? Are there wider political, social justice, emancipatory questions that can be asked when you consider impact and outcomes for children and families?
