Understanding and Managing Childhood Neglect (Level 3) Webinar

Course Title:
Understanding and Managing Childhood Neglect (Level 3) Webinar
Course Code:
Neglect Level 3 O

Neglect has been referred to as the most serious type of child maltreatment and the least understood.  Research has shown that, of all forms of maltreatment, neglect can have the most pervasive, serious and long-term effects on a child’s and young person’s health and development.

It is often under reported and underestimated in terms of the consequences for children. Neglect is a complex issue that presents many challenges for practitioners, not least a shared understanding and effective co-ordination of interventions across different services. Neglect has been identified as feature in both national and local Serious Case Reviews in Kingston & Richmond in recent years and Kingston & Richmond LSCB have identified Neglect as a priority issue for 2018-19.

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.

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
