Example text

We decided to think about relevant ethical issues in both phases of the research under three headings: consent, confidentiality and child protection. The latter issue extended beyond the normal statutory concerns into thinking about possible harm that might be inflicted by the research process itself, if not properly thought through. It was consequently broken down into three sub-issues: arrangements for disclosure, distress and danger.

In Phase II, it was decided to have three sub-samples of children, two of diverse ethnicity in contrasting parts of the country, and one black (see Chapter 6 for a fuller discussion of the latter). The work of obtaining a separate sample of black children proved to be much more complex even than had been anticipated. Intensive contact with 35 agencies over a period of many months by two members of the research team was needed to secure a sample of 14 children (instead of the target of 30).
