ExChange Events

ExChange attracts the best national speakers, as well as practice and research experts in social care, to train practitioners within their field at our regular events across Wales.

Alongside bi-annual conferences, leadership seminars for heads of service and senior staff, research launch events, adoption lectures and webinars, every month we offer members free interactive workshops to explore issues of interest and to network with other like-minded practitioners. Involving the views and experiences of service users is a key aspect of these workshops, offering a holistic view of social care delivery that could really make the difference for you and your team.







Our events take place across Wales, with contributions from a variety of social care and research partners. Our event training resources are available on our website. All of our events are free for social care practitioners in Wales.

We have a range of ways that you can work with ExChange. If you wish to host a workshop, webinar, podcast or blog for us, simply email us a completed 'Expression of Interest' form.

2020 Timetable

Mar 02, 2020

Presented by Dr Alyson Rees and Dr Tom Slater

In this workshop, we report findings from a qualitative, multi-disciplinary analysis of 20 Child Practice Reviews (CPRs) (previously Serious Case Review) in Wales. The reviews were analysed from three different disciplinary perspectives: law, criminology and practice (social work). The paper identifies the following cross-cutting themes: (i) hierarchy of knowledge, where certain sources of knowledge were privileged over others (ii) information sharing/recording, where deficiencies of sharing or recording of information were evident (iii) partial assessment, where certain assessments were not always holistic, and lastly, (iv) voice of the child, where the experience or perspective of the child was not always considered. This is the first study to explore themes emerging from (Welsh) CPRs and is also the first to do so from a multi-disciplinary perspective. The workshop will focus on implications for practice and policy.
