Supervision Skills: Making the Most of Supervision

‘It is as though the confluence of the search for certainty in detecting and eradicating abuse and neglect, combined with the belief (and management oversight) that following rules will further reduce the risk of missing a case, has replaced the space of reflection on professional judgement which actually protect children and young people’ (Munro Review of Child, 2010).

Supervision is an essential element of Social Care; effective supervision is linked to improved outcomes for service users. This course is designed for frontline staff working with children, young people and families. It wil ...

Understanding Harmful Sexual Behaviours (HSB) displayed by Children and Young People (Windsor and Maidenhead)

‘Harmful sexual behaviour (HSB) can be a challenging issue for professionals to manage. A child who displays HSB can have a range of behaviours, which need a safeguarding response. HSB has been identified as a significant risk factor in some serious case reviews. Published case reviews show that professionals can find it difficult to respond to the safeguarding implications of HSB. There may be several children involved, each of whom will have different needs, and minimising the immediate effects of an incident can become a priority. Because of this, professionals can find themselves managing ...
