Code: BH/22/0186 BHSCP-Suicide Awareness (Working with Young People) - (16yrs & over)

These training sessions are aimed at professionals in contact/working with families in East and West Sussex and Brighton and Hove who haven’t attended a Suicide awareness course in the last three years.

They are being run as a colaboration between all three Safeguarding Children Partnerships across Sussex and delivered by colleagues from Grassroots.

Course options:

Working with young people 16+ and adults : identifying, engaging and referring/sign posting individuals with suicidal thoughts and behaviours

The majority of those who die by suicide are not in contact with mental health services – they are right here in our community. Many children and young people, and their parents or carers, are either having thoughts of suicide, and an increasing number are attempting or even completing suicide.  

These basic awareness courses will equip professionals working with families to pick up on vulnerabilities, identify who might be at risk and start an open conversation about suicide, as this is one of the best way we know to prevent suicide.

We know this suicide is something that many professionals find it hard to talk about, especially with young people and their parents or carers.

Code: BH/22/0843 BHSCP - Working with Parents Effectively - (Enabling & Supporting Staff to deal with difficult or evasive behaviour

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 Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership (BHSCP)
