Child protection expert faces disciplinary hearing

“A child welfare expert accused of falsely claiming to be a doctor is facing a disciplinary hearing.”


“Susan Stewart ran Scotland’s Child and
Family Assessment Centre and gave evidence before the Scottish
Parliament’s Finance Committee.”



“She is accused of falsely claiming to
have a PhD in psychology from Stirling University and presenting herself
as a doctor between 1995 and 2012.”

“A Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) hearing began on Tuesday.”

The charge against her states
that she submitted a CV for a Stirling University teaching assistant
post, a job she started in 2012, which claimed she had a PhD from the
institution awarded in 1995.”



“She is also accused of submitting an
application form to Aberlour Child Care Trust, stating she had the same
qualification, for the position of service manager of Scotland’s Child
and Family Assessment Centre, a job she took up in 2010.”



“Ms Stewart, 46, is also said to have
used the false credential on a website advertising a child and family
consultancy run by her.”



“The SSSC charge also says she prepared
59 child and family assessment reports between 2003 and 2011 holding
herself out to be a doctor in the knowledge they would potentially be
relied on by sheriff courts and children’s hearings.”



“She is also alleged to have falsely
used the title `doctor` when promoting the launch of Aberlour’s Child
and Family Assessment Centre, while running a session at the National
Early Years Conference in 2010 and while giving evidence at the Scottish
Parliament’s Finance Committee in November 2010.”



“The four-day hearing is taking place in Dundee.”

The
allegation is that Susan Stewart falsely claimed to have a PhD in
psychology. Anybody with a PhD is a doctor of something… but she was
not claiming to be a medical doctor.
