Event description

Description

The most important pre-requisite for this course is an insatiable professional curiosity. In particular, this should focus on how we keep children’s needs at the centre of all we do, even when the adults’ interests are very compelling and attention grabbing. A willingness to acknowledge the challenges of working with neglectful, and often resistant, families is also an underpinning pre-requisite for joining this course.

Presented by:

Sue Woolmore - Sue has been working in child protection since 1986. Initially qualifying as a nurse and working in the Leeds teaching hospitals, she later trained as a social worker. Sue has held professional roles at local authority, regional and national level, in both the statutory and voluntary sectors. Sue also has extensive experience of speaking to the press and media about safeguarding children.

Learning Outcomes:

  • To be able to explore strategies for maintaining a child centred and ‘authoritative’ approach with resistant families, without losing empathy and compassion.
  • To understand how to apply the thresholds chart.
  • To be able to recognise the characteristics and behaviours of families and professionals who are engaged in a ‘resistant’ relationship.
  • To be better equipped to recognise ‘disguised compliance’ in families, particularly where child neglect is a concern.
  • To understand the importance of attachment history in family behaviours.
  • To understand better the impact of fear and stress on infant resilience and survival.
  • To understand the crucial role of reflective supervision for frontline practitioners.
  • To be better equipped to wrestle with the question, “How long should we keep trying with this family?”
