This one-day course will develop and extend your ability to recognise and respond effectively in families where adult mental illness is having a negative impact on children.
By the end of the course you will have:
— Developed your understanding of the definitions and prevalence of mental illness in adults
— Identified how parental mental ill-health can have an impact on children across a range of ages
— Explored the specific impacts of depression and personality disorder on adults, their parenting, and professional behaviour
— Considered learning from recent child safeguarding practice reviews (previously known as serious case reviews) where parental mental illness has been a feature
— Used a detailed case example to develop your understanding of how to contribute to more effective assessments and interventions
This event is suitable for professionals in all Working Together Groups.
Due to the current social distancing restrictions in place in light of COVID-19, the CSCP has worked with our experienced trainers to ensure that safeguarding training can still be made available to multi-agency partners. Although, there will be some changes for all delegates to note prior to booking:
— Delegates need to apply to join the course.
— All sessions will be held virtually — please make sure you can access Microsoft Teams or Zoom (these will be the preferred platforms for safeguarding training).
— Some session will require you to review a handout pack which will be sent to you in advance with instructions.
— Be aware that no online platform is completely secure, so keep questions general, and avoid giving any information that could be used to identify a child or family.
— Always keep your speaker on mute if you’re not speaking to reduce background noise.
— Please do not use any other devices while you’re taking part in the conference.
— Please take note of the allocated break and lunch times set during the training and behave as if you were in a ‘real’ training room.
Failure of any of the above will result in the delegate not receiving their certificate of accreditation.
