Code: BH/22/0848 BHSCP- Professional difference and challenge -

This event will be an interactive session looking at the roles of professionals and how they can challenge colleagues in safeguarding decisions, both in a professional and appropriate manner. The training will look at case studies to encourage group discussion, and provide insight into how the multi agency approach can differ from each agencies perspective. It will provide information around the escalation process that is available locally, and on how staff should follow this process if they feel that a decision needs to be considered further, thus reducing the potential risks for a child or young person and their family.

Code: BH/22/0572 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

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/22/0843 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)
