Abstract

Encouraging parental empowerment in child protection services

In youth care, parental empowerment is increasingly being seen as an efficient way to improve family functioning. In child protection services, parents may perceive the power differences and strains between them and youth professionals as an obstacle to work effectively on their empowerment. In this article, we conducted a literature review to explore what is known about strengthening parental empowerment in child protection services. Between March 2015 and February 2016, (inter)national scientific literature was searched concerning factors influencing parental empowerment in child protection services. The relevance of studies was established by using in- and exclusion criteria. Factors influencing parental empowerment can be found on the level of the client (for instance, family functioning and the social network) and on the level of the professional (relational components and participation components). This literature review is a first step towards knowledge about what can be done to strengthen empowerment of parents in child protection services. Since few studies have focused on parents in child protection services, more research concerning parental empowerment in this specific context has to be done.

  • Het tijdschrift Pedagogiek stelt zich ten doel de wetenschappelijke discussie over opvoeding, onderwijs en vorming binnen het Nederlands taalgebied (Nederland en Vlaanderen) te stimuleren en te ondersteunen. Pedagogiek beoogt naast een bijdrage aan het wetenschappelijke debat ook de maatschappelijke discussie op de terreinen van opvoeding, onderwijs en vorming te bevorderen. Bijdragen zullen dan ook uitdrukkelijk worden beoordeeld op zowel hun wetenschappelijke als maatschappelijke relevantie. Pedagogiek biedt: (1) wetenschappelijke verslagen van empirisch, theoretisch en historisch onderzoek op het gebied van opvoeding, onderwijs en vorming, alsmede review studies op onderhavige terreinen; (2) opiniërende bijdragen van wetenschappelijk niveau (Forumbijdragen); (3) boekbesprekingen.

    The journal Pedagogiek (Pedagogy) aims to stimulate and support the scholarly discourse on child rearing, education and training within the Dutch language area (The Netherlands and the Flemish region). Pedagogiek strives to contribute to the scholarly debate, but also desires to boost the public debate on the subject of child rearing, education and training. Therefore, contributions will be judged explicitly on both their scholarly merit and their social relevance. Pedagogiek offers: (1) scholarly articles reporting on empirical, theoretical and historical research in the field of child rearing, education and training, and review studies in the same field; (2) opinion pieces on a scholarly level (panel discussions); (3) book reviews.
