Aim of the course

  • This course will look at the reasons why listening and talking to children and young people is problematic and suggest techniques for overcoming some of the reservations that professionals feel in working with them. It aims to increase the competence and confidence of participants in working effectively with children for different purposes and across a range of settings.

Outcomes

By the end of the training participants will have had the opportunity to:

  • Consider child development and how children communicate, including awareness of different communication needs due to language or disability.
  • Understand more about the systemic barriers that exist to keeping the child in mind and become more aware of their own ‘blind spots’ in this area.
  • Review the importance of child development in assessing and safeguarding children.
  • Consider what is involved in meeting children for the first time and the necessity of careful planning, preparation and use of language in these circumstances.
  • Examine the challenges of communicating with children who may be at risk of significant harm and the role of communication in securing their safety.

Really engaging, very informative - a great days training!
