Event Description:

The training is a 2 day multi-agency course, delivered by an experienced trainer which looks at how to carry out a risk assessment using a range of tools, how to develop and test hypotheses, develops skills in analysing information and how to identify outcomes and draw up a SMART plan of action. It will stress the importance of analytic and intuitive reasoning and how to use these alongside assessment tools in supervision. The course will further explore the issues of difference and diversity, the use of professional judgements to make decisions whether a child is suffering (or is likely to suffer) significant harm, including complex cases where emergency action is needed. Course materials draw on research and Serious Case Reviews, both local and national.
