    News/Events Category: Children and Families

    University of Strathclyde, Glasgow

    This pilot study set out to identify and explore key factors in reducing or eliminating physical restraint, as well as in the successful holding, both metaphoric and literal, of children and young people in distress. It adopted an Appreciative Inquiry approach in two residential childcare service sites in Scotland. It was funded by the School of Social Work and Social Policy in the University of Strathclyde, was approved by the University of Strathclyde’s Ethics Committee, and was carried out by Laura Steckley, Lee Hollins, Sarah Deeley and Michael Bettencourt.
