eLearning: Information Sharing

‘Information sharing is vital to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. A key factor identified in many serious case reviews (SCRs) has been a failure by practitioners to record information, to share it, to understand its significance and then take appropriate action’ (HM Government, Information sharing, 2015).

Case Chronologies & Genograms (Windsor and Maidenhead)

Chronologies are a useful tool that helps practitioners to understand what is happening in the life of a child, adult or family. Simply put, it is a list in date order, of major changes and significant events in a child's, adult's or family's life. Chronologies are often used together with genograms. A genogram is a visual representation of a family tree that shows information about relationships among individuals.

Cultural Awareness

Culture can describe beliefs, behaviours and traits of an ethnic, social or age demographic. The cultural background of any individual will impact on how they interact with others.

These approaches are not limited to social work practice alone and have uses within a number of other disciplines, including education and mental health services. Multiple ways of understanding enables the ability to develop different ideas of knowing, resulting in greater solutions. ...
