and design defensible plans to reduce and manage the risk of harm

Participants will be offered opportunities to:

• Explore the key principles that underpin effective child-focused assessment in families where adults face complex life difficulties

• Consider how to generate and analyse information and provide good evidence on which to build decisions

• Develop questions that enable robust analysis of risk from a strengths-based perspective

• Consider how to use evidenced based professional judgement when analysing information and reaching conclusions.

This training will contribute towards the following. The course does not measure if
