Working with families affected by sibling sexual abuse - a roadmap for safeguarding

DATE AND LOCATION:

29 June 2022 (10am - 4pm, London, NW1 2BJ)

COURSE SUMMARY:

Sibling sexual abuse is the most common form of intrafamilial sexual harm in the UK, but recognising and responding to this issue brings many challenges for childcare professionals.

It will provide a ‘road map’ for those supporting families that is collaborative and tackles concerns in proportionate, child centred and evidence-based ways, promoting safety and healing for everyone in the family when it is most needed.

By the end of the course attendees will have learned:

SIBLING SEXUAL ABUSE WEBINAR

DATE:

9 May 2022 (1pm - 3pm)

WEBINAR SUMMARY:

Sibling sexual abuse is the most common form of sexual harm within families, but working with families affected by this issue brings many challenges for professionals.

Finding out that a sibling has abused another can be devastating for parents and sensitive family support is essential, but this needs to be provided alongside the completion of safeguarding tasks such as ascertaining whether the siblings can continue to live together after the identification of abuse, comprehensive assessment of the needs of the family and all siblings and the implementation of effective interventions that reduce risk and promote family safety, resilience, healing and reunification.

Using case examples, this two hour webinar will highlight current knowledge and evidence about tackling sibling sexual abuse after it has been identified and will outline a framework for responding to such cases in safeguarding contexts.

WEBINAR FEE:

Webinar prices per person: £40 + VAT for one webinar, £70 + VAT for two webinars, £90 + VAT for all three webinars.
