Key Research Interests
Mark's doctoral research was in the field of sensemaking in children and families social work, with a particular focus on how different forms of supervisory discussion support social workers' sensemaking. Mark's doctoral research used an ethnographic approach to look at how supervisory and supportive contexts - including informal and peer supervision - operated in children and families social work to enable social workers to make sense of their complex work. Mark is also interested in social work decision-making and judgement in children and families social work and has an interest in practice-near research approaches.
