Donna Price

Senior Lecturer

Donna gained both her Dip.SW (1993) and her BA (Hons) in Professional studies – Protecting Children (2000) here at Chichester.

She worked as an associate lecturer at the University from 2007, co-delivering the children’s safeguarding module, as well as contributing to the post-qualifying social work programme that was formerly run there. She joined the academic team on a full-time basis in the summer of 2013 following a 25 year career in Local Authority social work where she worked in both residential and fieldwork settings. This included 6 years working in the West Sussex Risk Assessment Team where she developed a practice specialism in the assessment of risk in adults who had perpetrated child abuse.

Donna gained an MSc in Child Forensic Studies: Psychology & Law from Portsmouth University in 2010 and spent the last 6 years of her social work career working as a Child Protection Adviser for West Sussex, and latterly as a Team Manager in Children’s Safeguarding.

Donna’s professional and research interests lie in the area of child protection, and more specifically, the management of identified sexual risk in family settings, and she continues to provide independent consultation and assessment in this regard.
