How child protection workers navigate their professional and personal lives
AIM: To contextualise child protection workers’ work-life interface and uncover their work-life management strategies.
Evidence suggests care workers often confront work–life challenges. The nature of these challenges, however, vary depending upon the type of care work and the country they are located in. Further, child protection (CP) workers remain an understudied minority in research on allied health workers. CPOW members – Dr Carys Chan, Dr Shea Fan – and Assoc. Prof. Darryn Snell are investigators of a project that examines how CP workers in Australia navigate their professional (work–client) and personal (work–life) lives. They are currently conducting a qualitative study based on semi-structured interviews of CP workers in Australia, and are still looking for more CP workers to interview.
