How to Conduct Research with Children Ethically
Researching violence against children is an incredibly important, yet ethically challenging task. How do we balance the importance of involving children in research with safeguarding their health and well-being?
The guests on this podcast have made ethics a priority in their research, considering and addressing any potential harm that may be caused—and they share their learnings.
This episode explores why a child’s perspective is so important when developing effective services and prevention programmes. The participants grapple with the issue of gaining informed consent from children and touch on the issue of vicarious trauma, which can affect researchers when hearing the experiences of children.
