Introduction to Systemic Principles (Windsor and Maidenhead)

Systemic principles have been influential in contemporary social work practice in a number of local authorities nationally. The London Borough of Hackney developed the ‘Reclaiming Social Work’ model, which has resulted in risk assessment and management utilising reflective clinical supervision (Pendry, 2012).

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. ...

Developing 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 ...

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. A number of recent Serious Case Reviews (SCRs) have highlighted that professionals working with families from different cultural backgrounds would benefit from a skills and knowledge refresher. Learning from these reviews will feed into this course and in doing so the facilitator will aim to build on delegates understanding of how cultural background will influence the work they undertake with children and families. ...

That Difficult Age: Developing a more effective response to risk in adolescence (Windsor & Maidenhead)

There is evidence to suggest, that as a nation, we do not adequately understand, identify, prevent or effectively reduce the significant risks that some adolescents experience (ADCS, 2013). This may be because adolescents are mistakenly perceived to be more resilient than young children, and that they have more freedom of choice. These types of assumptions can have negative consequences ranging from missed opportunities for intervention, help being offered too late, or resources being directed to unsuitable and ineffective solutions.

This course aims to explore how adolescent risk can be ad ...
