Think Family — See The Adult, See The Child

MICROSOFT TEAMS LIVE SEMINAR Wednesday 16th November 2022, 9am to 11am


This webinar is for practitioners and managers across children’s services and adult services whose roles and responsibilities include the safeguarding of children and adults at risk. The webinar will draw on learning from safeguarding adult reviews and serious case reviews (now child safeguarding practice reviews) in England, and child practice reviews in Wales. It will identify why practitioners and managers must always “think family” and see both the adult and the child. It will highlight the core components of this approach to practice, and give participants the opportunity to discuss what enables and what obstructs “thinking family” in their work experience.

This webinar will be suitable for Social Workers, Social Work Managers, Senior Strategic Managers, Police Officers, Domiciliary Care Managers, health professionals, CPNs, District Nurses and Third Sector Organisations.
