THE ATHENA PROGRAMME CONTINUES TO...
As The Athena Programme goes from strength
It is increasingly recognised that Parental Mental Health, Parental Substance Misuse and Parental Domestic Abuse are major risk factors for children who live in families where these issues are present. This course will be of interest to you if you want to find out more about how these factors co-exist within families and the impact they have on children.
You will be able to recognise how these factors have implications for child protection, understand how the issues impact on children and young people and understand the challenges they present for multi-disciplinary work. By using actual case studies you will increase your awareness of essential practice issues.
This course will be suitable for you if you work with children and young people, and / or vulnerable adults(adults at risk) and families. It will be of particular interest to NHS workers, probation workers, YOT workers, family workers, domestic abuse workers, substance misuse workers and volunteers. You do not have to have prior knowledge of safeguarding to take part in this course
