Child protection - working with adults
Child protection - working with adults: Aims of the event
As counsellors and psychotherapists working with adults, we often find ourselves working with clients who have caring responsibilities for children and young people. This workshop is an opportunity to gain an understanding of child protection in the context of working with adults and to reflect on the extent to which our own views and values influence our ability to engage with child protection risk in our clinical work. We will explore how we might identify and engage with potential risk, offering a measured and appropriate response which is proportionate to the risk presented.
Who is it for?
Counsellors, psychotherapists, student counsellors.
We will explore the Scottish Government's framework for promoting the safety and well-being of children and young people, understand the issues that might make us concerned for a child's safety, and our responsibilities when we have a child protection concern. We will also have space to think through some of the ethical dilemmas that arise in our work relating to child protection.
