Social Worker decision making in cases involving sexual behaviour between siblings
This research aims to explore social work decision making in cases where sexual behaviour between siblings has taken place, such as whether or not siblings can continue to live together, have contact with each other, or ultimately return to live together following a period of separation.
The research is being undertaken as a PhD project and is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
I am currently writing up this study with a view to submitting my thesis for examination early in 2015
