NEWS UPDATES 

New peer reviewed research shows significant improvements in both behavioural and affective measures achieved following implementation of the Pillars of Parenting ’emotional warmth model of professional childcare’.  

Cameron, R.J. and Das, R. (2019) “Empowering Residential Carers of Looked After Young People: The Impact of the Emotional Warmth Model of Professional Child Care” British Journal of Social Work

From January 2019, we can now announce that our approach is one of very few in the world which has peer-reviewed research data which demonstrates a positive impact on children. Indeed, the probability of obtaining these significant positive outcomes by chance, is less than one in a thousand.

Why this research is different
Most of the articles and papers on work with children in public care describe the methodology and offer anecdotal accounts of the work. While this is often inspiring, to understand what works requires evidence and evaluation. Using the long-established approach of gathering evidence and hypothesis testing, Dr Sean Cameron and Dr Ravi Das have subjected our ‘Emotional Warmth’ model to scientific methodology and analysis using eleven measures in children’s homes in two separate areas of England. Positive results were achieved with a probability of less than one in a thousand of obtaining these results by chance.
