Abstract

Within this study I aimed to promote the voices of a subset of children and young people (CYP) who often go unheard: CYP with behavioural-type difficulties who have experienced a managed move, a grey exclusion. I also wanted to explore the stories of parents and professionals involved in managed move protocols in an attempt to access a specific knowledge-set. Other researchers had suggested that it may be beneficial to explore the narratives of CYP, parents and professionals (Carlisle, 2011 and Bagley, 2012) in order to compare stories and identify significant motifs which may emerge. I approached this research through a social constructionist lens and was aware that by engaging with my participants, that I too was shaping their constructs. I acknowledge that the results are the outcome of an interactive construction of the participants realities; realities which will have been created within our social interactions, within my post-reflections and within my attempts to capture and communicate the essence of these important conversations. The findings of this study will enhance my personal practice and appreciation of CYP’s experiences of managed moves and will be of interest to my local authority (LA) and the educational psychology profession in general.
