Safeguarding Child Series - Communicating with Children/Families
As many high profile CSE cases have shown; communication, empathy, respect and support have been severely lacking by agencies who are employed to care for children. This Module has been developed to give practitioners and professionals the skills, confidence, competence and knowledge to ensure that children and families are listened to, supported and respected as they deserve to be and as is essential if positive outcomes are to be achieved.
