This is a three-and-a-half-hour training course exploring the very ‘basic’ knowledge and skills needed, by those who work with children, young people and families, for safeguarding children and young people.
To enable practitioners responsible for assessing the needs of children and young people who are suffering neglect to recognise the impact of neglect and through good assessment, reduce the impact of any significant harm suffered.
By the end of the training, practitioners, through case discussion and studies will:
- Have knowledge of the latest research on neglect
- Understand the long term consequences of neglect on the child’s health and well being
- Be aware of the impact of poor attachment and bonding
- Explore the tools available for assessing the impact of neglect on the child or young person
Both Cambridgeshire and Peterborough practitioners
The training is for practitioners who are responsible for assessing the needs of children and families i.e. social workers, health visitors, school nurses.
