Welcome to the Special Group for Psychology and Social Care website.
Social Services Departments, by and large, do not employ their own psychologists and there is no national move in this direction. However, Social Services Departments have onerous responsibilities to the most disadvantaged people in our society and recent legislation has provided many new challenges in the child, adolescent and adult spheres.
Psychological services are also undergoing rapid evolution and there is now greater emphasis upon clearly contracted professional work being delivered in a vigorously accountable manner.The Special Group aims to promote an active debate as to professional service evolution whilst encouraging new and worthwhile ventures.
