Therapeutic work with children and young people suffering child sexual abuse and exploitation

THURSDAY 14th OCTOBER 2021

VIRTUAL, Online

This Masterclass programme, facilitated by Dr Arnon Bentovim and Carol Jolliffe, will help practitioners working in social care, health, education and youth justice to deliver effective therapeutic work with children subject to sexual abuse and exploitation. The approach recognises that sexual abuse and exploitation occur in a context of significant adversity, and is based in Trauma Informed Practice which recognises common responses to adversity in childhood are traumatic, and such responses in association with a variety of social, psychological and genetic influences can trigger an extensive set of complex overlapping physical, behavioural and mental health responses. Trauma-Informed Practice TIP advocates that services should recognise the traumatic base of the problems presented to them and adapt their practice to encompass this understanding. The Hope for Children and Families Intervention Resources are a set of step-by-step guides, focusing on relevant themes, including Working with Child Sexual Abuse and Addressing Emotional and Traumatic Responses. Each module includes guidance notes, scripts, activities, and worksheets that can be organised into a customised treatment menu for each child or young person. They are designed to help practitioners from all types of services, training and levels of experience.

Practitioners in social care, health, education and youth justice who need to develop their skills in working with children and young people who have been sexually abused and exploited should attend.

Masterclass: Therapeutic Interventions to Reduce the Harmful Effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences

THURSDAY 21st OCTOBER 2021

VIRTUAL, Online

This CPD certified programme will outline the increasing evidence of the impact of Adverse Experiences of Childhood (ACEs) on the health and well-being of children and young people extending into adult life. There is a growing demand for interventions to prevent their harmful effects.

Research will be reviewed about the impact of ACEs through population studies, intergenerational studies, and specific groups – self harming, mental health, and substance abuse, offending, and violent behaviour.

Approaches to intervention will be reviewed, to prevent the harmful impact of maltreatment and the limitations of these approaches to fit with the complex responses associated with multiple ACEs.

Facilitated by: Arnon Bentovim trained at the Maudsley Hospital/Institute of psychiatry trained as a Psychoanalyst, and subsequently became involved in the growing interest in the systemic/family therapy field. He helped to establish the Association and Institute of Family Therapy, and researched measures of family functioning, and clinical approaches with colleagues at the Institute of Child Health and Great Ormond Street Children’s hospital.

Decision making using the Safeguarding Children Assessment and Analysis Framework
THURSDAY 23 SEPTEMBER 2021 (VIRTUAL, Online)

This virtual masterclass, facilitated by Fay Berry and Stephen Pizzey, explores decision making in complex child protection and safeguarding cases using the Safeguarding Children Assessment and Analysis Framework (SAAF).The Safeguarding Children Assessment and Analysis Framework (Pizzey, Bentovim, Cox, Bingley Miller and Tapp, 2016) was designed to help professionals make an analysis of the level of harm suffered or likely to be suffered by the child; the risks of re-abuse or likelihood of future harm; and the prospects for successful intervention in cases that social workers find complex. The SAAF provides a systematic, robust, evidence-based and time-efficient model and a range of methods for assessing, analysing and making decisions in the safeguarding context. The Safeguarding Children Assessment and Analysis Framework focuses on analysis and decision-making and enables practitioners to evidence the rationale underpinning their recommendations and decisions to their managers and the courts.Experienced professionals with responsibility for making or contributing to assessments of children and families where there are ongoing safeguarding concerns, including staff in children’s social care, CAMHS, health, education, police, probation, expert witnesses, children’s guardians and independent social workers should attend this masterclass.
