I joined the University of Manchester in 2013. Prior to this I was employed as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Lancaster where I set up and led the Child Welfare Research Unit. As a qualified social worker, I have extensive reseach and practice experience in social work with children and families, with specialist interest in the social work/family court interface, looked after children and adoption. I maintain very close engagement with practice agencies through collaborative research and knowledge exchange actvities. I regularly provide seminars and research briefings to practice and policy audiences. My educational background reflects lengthy engagement with the social sciences. My undergraduate studies were in Psychology at the University of Hull, followed by postgraduate training in social work at the University of York. In 2002, I obtained a bursary from the University of Central Lancashire which enabled me to study full-time for a PhD. My doctoral work examined lay views of help-seeking in connection with problems of parenting and the welfare of children. I used methods of micro-analysis to examine lay conversations about informal relationships of reciprocal support and help-seeking patterns. More recently, having been fortunate enough to to gain funding for a number of studies focused on pre-court social work, care and adoption proceedings, I have been able to further my interest in socio-legal research.

Description

Decision-making in institutional/professional settings has remained an established theme for social science and communication researchers. In contemporary western societies, the conditions of decision making are rapidly changing with the foregrounding of division of professional labour and distributed expertise against the backdrop of a client-centred ideology that legitimises shared decision-making. Increasingly, in health and social care settings, key decisions concerning clients are arrived at in team meetings, which have consequences both for the decisional processes and outcomes. This edited volume for the first time brings together a number of empirically grounded studies focusing on how team talk is functional to decision-making (in terms of problem formulation, generation of options, assessment of solutions etc.), with tensions, at the interactional level, between institutional and professional ways of categorising people, events and evidence.
