Assessing the protective skills of mothers, partners and adult carers

Working with non-offending partners

Who is it for?

This training will primarily benefit child protection social work staff. It will also be of great value to all professionals directly involved in child protection, including for example: psychologists, health visitors, midwives, school nurses, school and nursery teaching and non-teaching staff.

We also offer training which explores the individual intervention needs of mothers and partners, group work approaches to intervention and assessment and intervention combined.

How will this help?
