Children at Risk : what we don't understand
I present tailored workshops to professionals whose work brings them into contact with adults and children whose lives have been affected by domestic violence and child sexual abuse.
Who would benefit from these workshops?
Professionals such as social workers, counsellors, psychologists, teachers, educators, lawyers, doctors, therapists, and others whose work brings them into contact with people traumatised by abuse.
What topics are covered?
Topics can include:
- Domestic violence
- Child sexual abuse
- Presentation of chronically traumatised people
- Guidelines or protective intervention
- Myths and preconceptions
- Psychodynamic factors
- Professional collaboration
What will you get out of the workshops?
The workshops are interactive, drawing on research findings and practice experience. By discussing case studies and dilemmas in practice, you will gain a better understanding of:
- The realities of abusive experience
- The impact on children as victims and/or witnesses
- How to recognise and assess women, men, and children who have been victims of long-term abuse
How can the workshops be tailored?
Workshops half day, one day and two day workshops. A prior consultation session identifies what best suits the needs of your organisation.
