Code: BFS/20/99 Responding Effectively to Complex Neglect

Neglect is the most common reason why children and young people are subject of child protection plans and these numbers have been significantly increasing over recent years. It is also one of the most complex areas of child care practice. It is multi-dimensional and concerns fluctuate over time. It tests our ability to make meaningful relationships with families, assess their needs, and promote a process of change that is purposeful and realistic. It also test the ability of agencies to work together.

This course will look at these issues , and also consider them in the context of the Covid
19 crisis and the impact that this has had on both families and professional practice.

Code: BFS/20/87 Safeguarding Children Assessment and Analysis Framework

  • The SAAF was designed to help social workers make an analysis in complex cases about 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.

    The SAAF can be used with anymodel of practice adopted by a local authority so long as it is 'strengths-based' and based on the Assessment Framework (Working Together (2018)). The SAAF focuses on how social workers organise and make sense of the information they have gathered during the assessment phase.

    The use of the SAAF can helpsocial workers discriminate better those cases that meet the criteria for initiating court proceedings and those where it would be appropriate for further intervention before any proceedings are initiated.

    The two-day SAAF training programme is more effective when supported by the attendance of team managers and the provision of case-based
    coaching sessions.
