Child Neglect Training
Why is the BHSCP providing this course?
This course provides those attending with an overarching understanding of the issues surrounding neglect, how it can impact on the children and young people to whom it relates and how early interventions and agency procedures can be used to reduce the risk and thus safeguard from neglectful situations.
Members of staff, who work predominantly with children, young people and their families, parents or carers, and who could potentially contribute to the assessment, intervention and reviewing the safeguarding needs for a child or young person, where there are safeguarding concerns, and or potential risks.
- Explore and broaden participants’ understanding of child neglect
- Introduce participants to the benefits of taking a systems approach to improving professional practice
- Provide an opportunity to explore local multi-agency responses to child neglect through scenarios and discussion
- Help practitioners identify individual learning about child neglect and multi-agency working
- What aspects of the system help and hinder good practice.
