Abstract

The portfolio has three parts:

Part One: A systematic literature review, in which the literature relating to the assessment and identification of mental health problems in looked after children is reviewed.

Part Two: A mixed methods empirical research study which qualitatively explores foster carer’s perceptions of screening measures used with looked after children and the ability of these to capture need. Clinicians’ views regarding the same issue are also explored both quantitatively and qualitatively.

Part Three: Appendices including all relevant documents related to the systematic literature review and empirical papers and a reflective statement from the researcher on the process of completing the portfolio.
