This workshop aims to help give professionals the knowledge and confidence to act, using the CSA Centre’s Communicating with Children Guide. In this workshop we will explain what may be going on for children when they are being sexually abused, what prevents them from talking about their abuse, and what professionals can do to help children speak about what is happening.

Who this workshop is for:

This course is for any professional whose role may involve contact with children, including those in social care, health (primary care, mental health, accident and emergency, midwifery, health visiting, sexual health), police, adoption services, fostering services, schools and any other relevant services. The timings of this webinar series have been selected to ensure that anyone, no matter their profession, should find a convenient time to be able to attend. (Level 3)

Learning Objectives:

• A good understanding of how the Communicating with Children Guide can support you in your work

• Increased awareness and understanding of the barriers children face in telling

• A greater understanding of the professional behaviours that can give children the confidence to speak out

• Increased knowledge and confidence in how to respond when a child tells of their abuse

Please Note we recommend you attend Introduction to Child Sexual Abuse training before booking this workshop if you have had no previous Child Sexual Abuse training.
