Code: BH/18/1636 LSCB - Enabling & Supporting Compliance: Working with Disguised Compliance and Forceful Counter Argument in Safeguarding

Disguised compliance involves parents giving the appearance of co-operating with child welfare agencies to avoid raising suspicions and allay concerns.

Published case reviews highlight that professionals sometimes delay or avoid interventions due to parental disguised compliance. It is hard for professionals to work with families where there may be lack of cooperation and/or a hostile attitude.

When there are child welfare/protection issues, a failure to engage with the family may have serious implications and non-intervention is not an option.

This course has been produced to support professionals working with these problematic dynamics.

This training is provided by the Local Children's Safeguarding Board (LSCB)

We are currently finalising all features of the self-service platform, and as a member of our first phase group we would like to invite you to attend one of the outlined slots for an opportunity to get hands on training with the platform. 
 
We would like you to bring some actual pieces of work to process with you, maybe one of each type of process (new starter, additional position, change to contract, leaver).
