Contextual Safeguarding (Virtual Training Course)

Event code MA 20/128 
Event description This course will be delivered via Microsoft Teams.

Contextual Safeguarding is an approach to understanding, and responding to, children and young people's experiences of significant harm beyond their families. It recognises that the different relationships that young people form in their neighbourhoods, schools and online can feature violence and abuse. Parents/carers have little influence over these contexts, and young people's experiences of extra-familiar abuse can undermine parent-child relationships . Contextual Safeguarding, therefore, expands the objectives of child protection systems in recognition that young people are vulnerable to abuse in a range of social contexts. (Firmin 2017).

If you attend this session you will be asked to join a follow up webinar on the 10th November, to help explore how you considered and implemented Contextual Safeguarding in your organisation since attending the session. 
Training objectives The learning objectives for this course are as follows:
- Explore challenges in the current system to work in a Contextual Safeguarding way.
- An introduction and an overview of the Contextual Safeguarding Approach.
- How can you apply Contextual Safeguarding to your practice.
