Key Research Interests

The problem of child abuse and neglect has been a subject of concern and interest since David Howe's days as a child care officer. A developmental and attachment perspective has informed David Howe's research and writing in this field. David has a strong commitment to translating the findings of research into practice. Working closely with practitioners over many years has helped David Howe to produce evolving models of assessment and intervention. As many abused and neglected children are eventually placed for adoption, David's research interests have also extended into the world of permanent placement. The study of adoption outcomes, including search and reunion experiences in adulthood, has run in parallel with David Howe's child maltreatment research. More recently, an appreciation of children's emotional development has expanded into a more general interest in emotional intelligence and empathy including the part that emotional intelligence plays in the conduct of sound social work practice. Possessed of the belief that there is nothing so practical as a good theory, the role of social work theory runs through most of David Howe's research and writing.
