About this Event

This workshop aims to increase your knowledge and confidence about making safeguarding decisions about a child in the therapeutic context. It is targeted towards counsellors where the child or young person is not the client (but will also be useful for counsellors working with young people in private practice). There will be a mixture of information sharing and group discussion, with plenty of opportunities for questions.

The session will cover:

The legislative framework which promotes and safeguards a child’s welfare, and explore meanings of language and terminology used within this.

The role of the counsellor within statutory child protection procedures.

An overview of the types, signs and indicators of abuse, including within the family and contextual safeguarding, both online and offline.

Discussion and dilemmas with thresholds, within the parameters of confidentiality and sharing information in the counselling context.

Signposting – what to do next.
