Working Alongside Families: Experts by Experience – Derby

By nwg at East Midlands

This training course has been developed using the voices and experiences of affected families, to aid the evolution of the workforce in supporting families who are experts by experience of child sexual exploitation (CSE).The course has been produced with the support of members of affected families who want to assist practitioners in considering and reflecting on their own, and organisational practices. They share their experiences of services, the court process, the impact of CSE on them as parents as well as on their child and wider family. Delegates will be encouraged to consider different models of practice and how we work alongside families.

Training will compliment the NWG Parental Support Benchmarking Tool which has been designed to support agencies to examine their current offer to parents affected by child sexual exploitation and to think about the next steps to improve engagement with parents as a safeguarding partner.

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.

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
