Assessment and Management of Risk in Child Care and Child Protection guides staff through the risk assessment and management process related to child care and child protection.
The most pressing concern a professional faces when working with vulnerable children is making decisions concerning risk. The theory behind this training contests the negative understandings of risk found in professional practice, policy and research, and proposes positive concepts that embrace risk enablement. It seeks to promote principles based on the rights of people at risk of harm to make choices about risk and risk taking.
This essential training resource is a step-by-step guide to delivering a risk assessment and management programme for children. Assessment and Management of Risk in Child Care and Child Protection comprises four modules and each is based on a specific stage of the risk assessment and management process. The modules are broken down into easily manageable training sessions which include case studies, exercises and handouts to support the presentation material and training notes.
The pack contains:
CD-Rom containing trainer’s notes, handouts, ringbinder with colour laminated dividers.
Trainers of welfare practitioners, managers and practitioners working in the statutory and independent sectors of welfare. It can also be used in conjunction with service users and informal carers, as participants of the training course.
