This workshop is for therapists working with both adults and young people. The workshop will increase your knowledge and confidence about making safeguarding decisions about children and adults in the therapeutic context. We focus on joined up thinking across families and networks.
Venue: This workshop will be held remotely on zoom
This training is delivered for Sheffield Central Counselling by Lynn Findlay. Lynn is a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, and a registered social worker with over 20 years experience working in safeguarding. She also has many years’ experience designing and delivering training sessions.
This workshop is helpful for therapists working with adults or young people. Many adult clients have contact with children in some capacity, and all children are cared for by adults.
What will I learn? The session covers:
· Legislative and statutory framework which promotes and safeguards a child’s welfare, including understanding terminology and comparisons with safeguarding vulnerable adults (joined up thinking).
· An overview of types of harm and abuse
· The role of the therapist within this framework, exploring issues of confidentiality and contracting in the counselling context, with consideration to GDPR.
· Making sense of your concerns and threshold dilemmas
· Guidance on recording and reporting concerns
· Signposting - what next.
How is it delivered? This is currently via Zoom, with information sharing, whole group discussion, and opportunities for questions and personal reflection.
