The first seminar, 24th June will focus on the losses that COVID-19 has brought about for families and practitioners.

The second seminar, 25th June will focus on the ethics, impact and considerations of digital working.

Both seminars will use these focuses to consider how we can try to manage the risks and uncertainties of working with children and families whilst continuing to address the safeguarding risks.

Who is this course suitable for?

Any education, health and social care team member or practitioner who is working with children and families. Especially for those who work where there are safeguarding concerns.  

For example, social workers, psychologists, health visitors, teachers, nursery workers, therapists.

Aims of the seminar

For the speakers to share their experiences and expertise that will then shape the discussion for the attendees discuss and think together about their own experiences and practice.

To learn and think together about their work with children and families and how it has been impacted by COVID-19 and working digitally.

We will offer the space afterwards to form a community of practitioners to come together to think for those that are interested too.
