This one-day programme will highlight the benefits of effective communication with children and support you in developing practical skills for carrying out direct work.
By the end of the course participants will have:
— Considered some of the main messages from law, guidance, and recent child safeguarding practice reviews for why ascertaining the child’s voice is essential in our work.
— Identified key activities that needs to be undertaken before during and after a piece of direct work in order to maximise the likelihood of a successful piece of work.
— Developed an awareness of the need to create a physically, psychologically and emotionally safe setting in which the child can tell their story.
— Been introduced to a toolkit of techniques to adapt and apply in their practice with children across a range of ages and needs.
This event is suitable for professionals in all Working Together Groups and meets the requirements of Level 3 of the Intercollegiate Document.
