Research output: Book/ReportOther reportpeer-review


This briefing, and the tools contained within it, offer guidance on how social care practitioners can work with minoritised children and young people to explore their identities, meet their identity needs and promote positive identity development. It builds on research undertaken by Coventry University (funded by the Nuffield Foundation) regarding the identities of minoritised children and young people in care. The briefing provides tools to help social care practitioners think about and explore identity with children and young people, including:

the different layers within their identities
how they think, feel and relate to different aspects of their inherited identities
how they think about their identities within different contexts, and with different people.
