Psychology and Social Services

Sue Cavill visited Ruth Nissim, a Chartered Educational and Clinical Psychologist with Oxfordshire Social Services*, for our occasional series 'Psychology in practice'.
SOME of the most disadvantaged children in Britain, those within the care system, are also the least likely to receive the help they need, according to Ruth Nissim, a Chartered Educational and Clinical Psychologist who works in the Children’s Services section of Oxfordshire Social Services. Children’s Services provide a range of services for children aged from birth to 19, from preventative work through to dealing with very severe problems. For example, on an informal level they provide family centres where parents can get support and advice, and more formally they can remove children permanently from their parents and place them in long-term substitute care.
