This is in part because I'm not aware of this conversation being had openly, or of research reating to this point, so I've not heard how others might phrase it. What I meant was that birth parents who have had their children ...

Re: Adoption: separation of siblings

It's not just a speed of placement issue. There is a growing recognition that sibling placements are very complex and not always best for children. Family Futures is one particular voice calling for careful assessment of siblings groups, rather than the assumption that being placed together is best ...

Re: Affordable Transcription Services?

Thanks so much for sharing your recommendations and thoughts. I will approach my supervisor, who is also the course director. It may be that the department has an agreement with a service I could use. I will also ask her whether we need to return to the ethics committee to do this. In terms of budge...

Re: Semi structured interviews- resources and tips?

Thanks so much choirgirl- great idea to have a look at how TA is written up and there were several helpful references in there :) Yes, I do think it's a shame that training emphasises quantitative methods, when most of the research that services are equipped to do will be qualitative or very small s...
