ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on social worker William Herbert Laming's recommendation to split the social work degree into children's and adult's specialisms following a year of generic training. According to the author, social workers are of the opinion that the split would damage joined-up working. The author opines that emphasizing on analysis and post-qualifying training and supervision is key to child protection.
