This masterclass will draw upon Lisa’s doctoral research and will explore intimacy in professional adult-child relationships with a particular focus on the use of touch in practice.  Drawing upon examples from the research, we will discuss some of the myths, misunderstanding and meaningful uses of touch in practice.

Lisa Warwick is a Qualified Social Worker and Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham, currently working on the ESRC funded project: ‘Organisations, staff support and the dynamics and quality of social work practice: A qualitative longitudinal study of child protection work’.  Her PhD research was an ethnographic study of adult-child relationships and the use of touch in residential child care.
