The BeST? Services Trial, a randomised controlled trial of an infant mental health service for maltreated pre-school children, will provide the backdrop to discussion about the use of RCTs in social care. The seminar will address the ethics of randomisation including the importance of ensuring participants are fully informed and that all stakeholders understand there is uncertainty as to the outcome.

Helen Minnis is a Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Glasgow University. She has a longstanding interest in understanding and developing interventions for maltreated children. Helen is leading the first RCT of an infant mental health service for maltreated children embedded within social care.
