Code: BH/22/0840 BHSCP Children & Young People Who Display Harmful Sexual Behaviours

Many expressions of sexual behaviour are part of healthy development and no cause for concern. However, when children or young people display sexual behaviour that increases their vulnerability or causes harm to someone else, adults have a responsibility to provide support and protection.

This introductory course to Harmful Sexual Behaviours is a mixture of presentation, discussion and practical exercise and will give staff the opportunity to extend their knowledge of evidence based work with children & young people.

There will also be the potential for looking at peer on peer abuse, incidents that occur between young people of similar age.

Code: BH/22/0687 BHSCP - Safeguarding Briefing - Operation Solah

This short hour long briefing is to explain the joint Iniative between Sussex Police and colleagues at Wise/Barnados.


SOLAH stands for "safer online at home " and was started in November 2021 as a specific pathway for POLIT to refer children and young people who were either uploading self generated images to the Internet or sharing indecent images of children between themselves or on online. 

 

Once an appropriate case is identified we refer to WiSE or Barnardos to make contact with the family and offer safeguarding advice and online education sessions to both parents/carers and the child/young person. This can take place once or over a number of sessions. These organisations are much better placed than POLIT to deliver this kind of support.

 

Not every case will get referred. Where we believe there is evidence of online grooming, previous history of sexual offending, significant or ongoing Children's Services engagement already or concerns about wider risks to case workers from the family (DV, drugs, violence , sexual offending etc) then the matter will remain with Police, possibly with CS involvement , to resolve.

Code: BH/22/0410 BHSCP - Improving Outcomes for Looked After Children (EVENT FULL)

Course Aims:
Attendees will have an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills that enhance their contribution to improving outcomes (both emotional and physical) for those children that they are responsible for or in their care. It will highlight the essential partnership working required across health, education, social care, police and other partners to achieve optimum health.


Target Group: This multi-agency training opportunity is aimed at all practitioners and carers working or caring for looked after children or care leavers. This includes foster carers, residential workers, GPs, Health Visitors, School Nurses, Independent Reviewing Officers and Supervising Social Workers.

Messages from practice and research highlights that children and adults who are care experienced have higher rates of physical, emotional, social, and educational need, and are more likely to experience homelessness, teenage pregnancy,  prison  and problems with their mental and emotional health. They are also more likely to die younger. The majority of children who enter care have suffered significant harm, neglect and trauma, and some are children who have travelled alone from their country of origin to seek asylum in UK.

Code: BH/22/0571 BHSCP - Trauma Informed Practice a Multi-Agency Approach

Trauma, particularly in early childhood, can have severe impact on a child throughout their life. It can manifest as behavioural issues, and have a severe effect on both their mental and physical health. When they grow older they may can be drawn into violence, criminal activity, and self harm, as well as being more likely to engage in health-harming behaviours. These issues can continue to have effect on the manner in which they interact with others throughout their life, including their own children, and they are more likely to become a victim of abuse, or a potential perpetrator, in their own relationships.

We often refer to these traumatic events Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE). Almost half of the adult population of England have had some form of adversity within their childhood or adolescence. These can include bereavement, neglect, violence, being witness to domestic abuse, sexual assault and substance use by parents and carers.

This training event will raise awareness of the issues relating to working with children and families where there has been some form of trauma. This is a joint enterprise between the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB), Public Health and partners from Sussex University
