Based on a sound model of good practice, Post-abuse Training for Staff Working with Adultsat Risk is a highly participative resource designed to inform multidisciplinary staff about the important work that should be carried out after an investigation into abuse is completed.
This three-day training course uses 12 case studies to examine issues of vulnerability, risk and planning safeguards by giving equal focus to the victim, the perpetrator and the service.
Participants will assess the nature of interventions required for the victim, perpetrator and the service system; separate out issues of risk; examine the organisational and individual factors that predispose an individual or service to abusive behaviour; use the law appropriately to deliver safeguards and sanctions; locate and brief services to provide support and treatment to those affected by abuse; learn about working with the criminal justice system, regulators and enforcement agencies to ensure robust safeguards are in place.
Multidisciplinary staff working with adults who are at risk, including social workers and managers, police, and housing officers.
