Childhood vulnerability and the ‘trio of risks’. Webinar

Course Title:
Childhood vulnerability and the ‘trio of risks’. Webinar
Course Code:
Trio of Risks

Recent years have seen a developing awareness of the factors in children’s lives that can contribute to their being more vulnerable to having additional and, at times, complex needs. Research has consistently highlighted that children often progress less well in environments where there is one or more of parental mental ill-health, problem use of drugs or domestic abuse. These factors are often called the ‘trio of risks’. More recent years have seen a growing awareness of the impact of other parental and environmental factors, such as poverty, that can cumulatively increase children’s vulnerability
