These are the latest child welfare items that should be right on your radar:
- Family Court Psychologist complains her career is ‘on the line’ after parents raise concerns over her qualifications
- Three-quarters of social workers still to renew practice registration with one month to go
- Bristol social worker barred after posting obscene child porn video on Instagram
- Solihull Council handed Statutory Direction over children’s services

It is not generally known that psychologists (unlike psychiatrists) need have no qualifications whatever ! Any reader on this site can claim to be the best psychologist in England without fear of reprisal as although qualifications do exist they are entirely voluntary.
The same goes for social workers until recently as public outrage when illiterate foreign women (usually childless) who speak very poor english start ordering around perfectly good mothers and criticising the way they bring up their children !
I am glad to see that registrations are now being checked .Anyone impersonating a qualified psy or social worker deserves to have their career ended !!
