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 third instalment of our core courses which explores how agencies across the city work together to keep children safe through the Child Protection Conference, and Core Group processes. This includes a presentation by the Youth Advocacy Project which works with children & young people to ensure that their voice is taken into consideration. This course has recently been reviewed and updated by the CPRO (Child Protection Review Officers), in line with their restructured service. It will help you understand the aims, purpose and process of a Child Protection Conference and Core Group and to become a more effective participant in that process.
