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 ...

KRSCP Working with Race, Culture and Belief Systems in the Context of Professional Curiosity

Professional curiosity is described as thinking beyond a single source of information and considering, holistically, the circumstances of the child and family. It requires asking questions, verifying and checking information, as well as not making assumptions or accepting things at face value.

“While the presence of a potential indicator of neglect does not necessarily mean that a child is being neglected, it will always warrant further investigation. Practitioners must be ‘professionally curious’ to determine further information in the interests of the child. It is essential that professio ...

Working with Difficult to Engage Parents (EVENT FULL)

‘Irrespective of whether they co-operate, it is worth remembering that most parents involved in the child welfare system are involuntary participants in a process they may resent‘
