Child social service workers are often disliked by divorced parents and organisations, especially when court proceedings are involved. But it’s a very difficult and high stress job. Making decisions that affect people’s lives, where no matter what you do someone is bound to hate you for it. So how do they make their decisions? What sort of evidence do they need? And are they aware of Parental Alienation syndrome, or even trained to deal with PAS? This week I address some of these questions with child social services worker Alex Baxter. Some may see this as speaking to someone ‘on the other side’, but Alex share’s some important insight into her profession, why she does it, and even some advice for parents going through the court system. And I think I ask her questions that many parents would like to know the answers to.
