Trainer: Mike Smith, Independent Safeguarding and Child Protection Training Consultant
Location: Virtually — Microsoft Teams
This 2 ½ hour virtual session will develop your ability to respond effectively in families where parental mental illness is having a negative impact on children. The course will be supported by a detailed handout pack and a short piece of pre-course reading.
By the end of the course delegates will have:
— Developed their understanding of the definitions and prevalence of mental illness in adults
— Identified ways in which parental mental ill-health can have an impact on children across a range of ages
— Considered learning from relevant child safeguarding practice reviews and research, and
— Used case material to consider some of the issues related to assessment and planning.
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.
— Delegates will be sent the link for the handout pack two working days before the advertised training date, instructions will be provided.
— We have made the handout pack available across 2 days to help fit in with your changed working arrangements.
— Delegates are expected to work through the handouts, prior to the virtual session.
Before the training, we expect delegates to:
— Dedicate sufficient time to work through the handouts prior to the virtual session.
— Not share amend or adapt anything from the handouts, the copyright of these documents is held by the trainer.
— Please ensure you have the correct software on your device to join the virtual session.
— Please join in the virtual session earlier than advertised to allow for any IT issues.
Failure of any of the above will result in the delegate not receiving their certificate of accreditation.
