Full Professor

‘we are the words; we are the music; we are the thing itself' - Virginia Woolf

Biography and research area

I am born in Leuven, Belgium, on June 20, 1965. I obtained a master’s degree in clinical child & developmental psychology from my hometown’s university and started my academic career in 1990. I have been working in the Leuven Parenting and Special Education Research Unit for almost 20 years, in different positions. I was junior researcher, postdoc, assistant professor and associate professor. I had my first experience abroad in 1995, when I started a PhD at the University of Groningen. In 1999, I defended my dissertation. In 2010, I returned to the University of Groningen for a full professorship in the Special Needs Education & Youth Care Unit.

I am conducting research on child welfare issues, with foster care and child maltreatment being my core subjects. I study decision-making processes in the foster care system, in especially matching and reunification, experiences and needs of foster children, interventions for foster families, and short- and long-term outcomes of foster placement. In my research on child maltreatment I focus on policies towards abuse and neglect, participation of children in child protection investigations, parenting foster children with complex trauma and historical abuse of children in foster care.

I have a powerful international network in academia. Since 2005, I am president of the European Scientific Association on Residential and Family Care for Children and Adolescents. I am member of the International Association for Outcome-Based Evaluation and Research on Families’ and Children’s Services, the Foster Care Research Group and the International Network on Studies of Inquiries into Child Abuse, Politics of Apology and Historical Representations of Children in Out-of home Care. Between 2007 and 2016, I have been visiting professor at the University of Trondheim, Norway, and the University of Paris X Nanterre, France.

I have a particular interest in studying voices of vulnerable children and in qualitative research methods.

Other projects

Historic abuse of children in foster care 1945-2017. The Commission De Winter appointed us to inquire into historic abuse of children who were placed in foster families between 1945 and present. In this study, we focus on two perspectives: the children who were victims of violence (child dimension) and the context of policy and practice in which violence could take place (contextual dimension). Researchers: Danielle Zevulun, Esther Piersma, Mijntje ten Brummelaar. Funded by Commission De Winter.

Project Audre. Audre project started in Groningen (October 2017) to understand the experiences of LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender,  Queer, Intersex and Asexual) youth and young adults with their time in out-of-home care. In addition, Audre project focuses on the perceptions of carers (such as group care workers and foster carers) who are responsible for the wellbeing of young people while in care. The final goal of Audre is to gain further insight on how to create a safe and supportive child protection and welfare context, in which youth feel accepted and are equipped to express their (gender) identity. Researchers: Mónica López López (project leader), Mijntje ten Brummelaar, Elianne Zijlstra. Funded by Fonds Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek Seksualiteit.

Participation in the out-of-home placement decision. The decision for placing children in out-of-home care is not straightforward. Often, there are conflicting interests and uncertain factors present. The United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of the Child states in article 12 that each child has the right to express their views in all matters affecting them, and that their views will be given due weight. Moreover, children who participate in the decision for out-of-home care more often have better outcomes. However, in The Netherlands only few children under the age of twelve participate in this decision. The main research question of this study is therefore: ‘How is the voice of children under the age of twelve currently weighted in the decision for out-of-home placement and how can this be strengthened?’ This study is a collaboration between the University of Groningen and Defence for Children. The research question will be answered by conducting a policy analysis, interviews with children and professionals, and a case file study. Researchers: Anne Steenbakkers, Mariëlle Bahlmann (Defence for Children). Funded by Stichting Kinderpostzegels Nederland.

Referral and monitoring of child abuse cases in the Dutch justice system. A qualitative study of international policy. In this project, we analyze and compare the policy regarding referral and monitoring of reports of child maltreatment in 16 Western countries, using documents and an online survey. We focus on characteristics of systems, recent innovations and their implementation, definitions of child maltreatment underlying systems and figures about child maltreatment. Aim of the project is to inform Dutch policy makers about the usefulness of systems for referral and monitoring of child abuse cases in the Dutch justice system. Researcher: Mónica López López, Marina Vergopoulou.

Project HebeIn this project, we aim to gain knowledge about the experiences of children who have been involved in child protection investigations. Moreover, the study will contribute to the development of new methods for involving children in research. One of the most innovative aspects of Hebe is precisely the participation of children and young adults who suffered child maltreatment as co-researchers in the development of the study design, research instrument and dissemination. With this, Hebe aims to empower children and show the value of including children’s views in research and evaluation of policy and practice. Project Hebe is linked with project Hestia. Researchers: Helen Bouma, Esther Piersma. Funded by Pro Juventute.
