Recording and the value of verbatim notes from interviews

The most interesting part of this article are the comments. Not all social workers are bad but with PA and the evidenced lack of training and bias that exists, protecting yourself is protecting your children. Having the correct facts is only presenting the truth. The Police have used recording of interviews since PACE 1984. It is an opportunity for professionals to demonstrate best practice. We’ve also seen this issue of misreporting in DWP assessments. Maybe it’s time for all professionals to benchmark a best practice approach for transparency and accountability.
