Safeguarding Workshop

About this Event

The Safeguarding Against Extremism training workshops are designed in a manner which is geared towards supporting front-line practitioners who are engaged in Safeguarding vulnerable people in society. These practitioners will most likely work in, or be supported by, Local Authority Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hubs and Complex Safeguarding Hubs.

The workshops create an integrated, common approach to the assessment and formulation of risk through the lens of behaviour. This approach places academia and clinical psychology, as a discipline, front and centre to recognising individuals who demonstrate vulnerability from a range of factors, including mental health and other neuro impairments .

Delegates will receive a series of interactive training sessions culminating in a table-top exercise to evaluate multi-agency preparedness. This is not an artificial training scenario but an anonymised, real-life incident relating to events as they actually happened. Throughout the workshop delegates will receive training on the range of statistically relevant observable behaviours (‘signals’) which indicate that an individual is on a trajectory towards committing an act of politically-motivated violent extremism. As front-line safeguarding professionals and designated safeguarding leads, delegates will be uniquely placed to recognise changes to an individual’s behaviour and will additionally receive training on the most effective pathways for flagging concern

At the conclusion of the workshop delegates will receive an aide memoir training product, detailing the critical signals which announce that an individual is on a pathway to violent extremism. The product also provides explanations of how the signals manifest themselves in an individual’s behaviour. This aide memoir can additionally be utilised as a training product for dissemination to staff in the delegate’s respective agency.
