Child Sexual Abuse: What are we still missing? Webinar

Course Title:
Child Sexual Abuse: What are we still missing? Webinar
Course Code:
CSAO
Description:

We know from the research evidence, practitioners are still struggling to notice signs, and create environments where children can speak about sexual abuse.    This training aims to support professionals to recognise and respond effectively to a range of situations where a child may have suffered, or be at risk of, sexual abuse, and will explore how sex offenders target and victimise children.

This online training will be delivered remotely in a modular format using pre reading and scenario based exercises, pre-recorded audio presentation by the trainer and online interactive sessions with the trainer and other delegates.

 

The impact of child sexual abuse can be complex and severe, persisting beyond childhood and into adult life. Research and child protection practice has highlighted that sexual abuse is not only perpetrated by adult relatives. For example, the abuser can be an adult in a position of trust, another (sometimes older) child, or part of a gang or group seeking to criminally exploit a child. Children are increasingly vulnerable to online forms of sexual abuse. Factors such as self-blame, along with threats and lies by a perpetrator can inhibit the reporting the abuse for months, even years.

Please note that if you are booking from Education Services or from outside the Boroughs of Richmond and Kingston there will be a booking fee of £60
