Transitions: 16 to 18 and beyond – Derby

By nwg at East Midlands

Delivered by Steve Baguley, the National Child Sexual Exploitation Response Unit’s Education and Community Lead.

Transition from Children’s to Adult Services has been highlighted as a national issue, with a ‘cliff -edge’ of support as vulnerable children turn 18. This training course has drawn on the knowledge and practice experience of Steve Baguley, the Education & Community Lead for the National Child Sexual Exploitation Response Unit. Steve has spent 12 months engaging with services across the country looking at approaches to transition planning and exploring the critical challenges facing practitioners who work with children approaching adulthood

This training course aims to embed in practice some of the findings of the NWG’s report into transitional support for CSE victims and complement our transition benchmarking tool which
is designed to ensure an improved strategic response to the issue. Delegates will develop approaches to working with older children in preparation for transition and be provided with insight into adolescent brain development to better inform their practice. The training will support understanding and the implementation of relevant legislation and practice guidance surrounding transition. Delegates will be provided with guidance on planning for transition and bridging the gap between Adult and Children’s Services, as well as working with CSE victims into adulthood.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course delegates will be able to;

– Recognise ways in which young people may be perceived and how this can impact on services they receive.

– Consider challenges we may face when transitioning young people from children to adult services and how we might apply learning to counteract them.

– Explain what research tells us about this cohort of young people.

– Compare and discuss ways in which practitioners assess and understand consent and the relevance of this issue to young people above the age of 16.

– Identify and apply appropriate CSE disruption strategies for young people.

– Recognise the importance of family support for young people of this age.

– Demonstrate the use of The Care Act 2014 and Mental Capacity Act 2005 and their appropriateness for young people age 16 and above.

– Explain the impact of trauma on brain development and ways in which young people respond to trauma and manage emotions.

– Reflect on examples of developing practice and give consideration to how we might develop our own practice.

Combatting Child Sexual Exploitation in Sport – Derby

By nwg at East Midlands

This NWG CPD accredited course has been developed in collaboration with Edge Hill University’s Dr Mike Hartill to provide a greater comprehension around the issue of sexual abuse and exploitation within sport. The course provides attendees with the historical context and prevalence of child sexual exploitation in sport within the UK and beyond. The course looks towards developments in policy that have been put into place to safeguard children in sporting environments and how these may impact on our practice as individuals and as organisations. During the training day learning is enriched through the use of the voices of survivors of CSE in Sport.

The training is delivered by NWG’s Safeguarding in Sport Lead, Kevin Murphy who has a sound understanding of how young people need to be protected when engaging in community activities and has been involved in the International VOICE’s for Truth and Dignity project. This project involves 7 countries researching the experiences of those abused through sport and bringing that knowledge and those voices into his role.

This course is aimed at anyone working within sport who wants to broaden their understanding of abuse in sport along with multi-agency practitioners who work alongside children, young people and their families who wish to extend their understanding and practice in the field of sport.

Attachment, Trauma & CSE: Level 3 (Basis Training & Education)

By other at North Yorkshire

This training event explores trauma and attachment and how it relates to CSE, including how trauma and/or Insecure Attachments will manifest relating to CSE victims (those vulnerable to and those actually exploited), whether the trauma took place in early childhood or has been caused by recent or ongoing sexual exploitation . The course will then build on this knowledge to further explore effective responses based on this understanding. It will also explore the issues of resilence and “resistance” to engage in the context of trauma informed practice for engaging with young people affected by CSE. Finally it will explore the issue the vicarious trauma.

The course is aimed at practitioners with some experience of working with young people who have been affected by child sexual exploitation as it assumes some knowledge of child sexual exploitation.

The course will be delivered by an experienced CSE practitioner and trainer, who is also a counselor.

The course is CPD accredited.

Back by popular demand – Unveiling Sexual Exploitation – Zoe Lodrick

By nwg at East Midlands

Back by popular demand! Please book on early as this is due to be filled quickly!

Zoe is a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and an experienced Trainer and Consultant. She has over 22 years experience of providing psychotherapy to women and men who have experienced rape, sexual assault and/or childhood sexual abuse; and providing training and consultation to professionals who work with victims/survivors of sexualised traumas (whether therapeutically or within the criminal justice system).

Zoe is generally recognised as having specialist knowledge/expertise in sexualised trauma, domestic abuse, victim behaviour, sex offending and the interviewing of victims of sexual crimes. Additionally Zoe has considerable knowledge regarding the therapeutic needs of victims/survivors of rape, sexual assault, child sexual exploitation/abuse and domestic abuse.

Throughout the day the seminar will cover;

The psychology of the offender:

  • the process that precedes offending (Finklehor’s ‘Preconditions Model’)
  • the ‘socially skilled’ sex offender
  • how, and why, they target certain victims
  • what the psychology of the offender does to the psychology of the victim
  • the distorted thinking of sex offenders as reflected in society
  • the importance of understanding sex offenders in order to safeguard people from them, recognise them, interview and prosecute them

The neurobiology of threat:

  • the adolescent brain
  • the specific vulnerabilities of children and, especially, teenagers to sex offenders
  • why people do not usually react in ‘logical’ or ‘active’ ways when faced with intimate interpersonal threat
  • the impact of the lack of understanding of why the person did not behave ‘logically and actively’, on the individual him or herself (resulting in guilt, shame and feelings of responsibility and, ultimately, potential omissions and alterations in their account), on the investigative and protection process and on criminal justice
  • how, and why, people become vulnerable to repeated victimisation
  • how, and why, victims can become ensnared with the abuser (perhaps not recognising themselves to be victims)

Attachment theory:

  • basic concepts will be used to explain the traumatic bonding often observed in victims of intimate interpersonal violence/abuse
  • recognising the vulnerabilities that some people have to being targeted and intimately abused/exploited
  • understanding what is required from the professional to support people to either not become ensnared in an abusive relationship/environment or to disentangle from such
