An in-depth understanding of the Life Story process and how this work helps children to make sense of their past so that what has happened to them does not dominate, control, or inhibit the present. Based on Richard Rose’s book, ‘Life Story Therapy with Traumatised Children - A Model For Practice’, attendees will be shown at least 15 techniques which have been successfully utilised to assist children in communicating their trauma.
This is the first of three core courses to provide staff from all agencies, (within the statutory and voluntary sectors), with an introduction to how agencies work to keep children and young people within the city of Brighton & Hove safe.
This safeguarding training is implicit in keeping children and young people safe from all aspects of abuse, be they sexual, physical, neglect or emotional.
It will develop your understanding of how the inter-agency working arrangements are put in place and how early help interventions can be utilised within safeguarding procedures. It will also raise your awareness of the issues with regard to all elements of abusive behaviour toward children and young people.
It is recommended that anyone new to safeguarding undertakes this training in conjunction with the other two days of “working together”, and that all three days are completed, before moving on to attending any of the more specialised training provided by the LSCBEssential Information
