Thursday 10th March - Supporting Children to Disclose Abuse
ChildHope will be facilitating a series of free seminars on principles and practices in child protection. The seminars are open to anyone who would like to deepen their understanding of work with vulnerable children. We hope that this will be a starting point for sharing the wealth of knowledge and skills held within agencies around the world on the practical application of child protection.
Seminar 1: Thursday 10th March
The second seminar in the series will be co-delivered by ChildHope and War Child.
Karen Walker- Simpson, Safeguarding Manager at ChildHope, will explore the challenges and dilemmas children go through before making a disclosure of abuse. The presentation will draw on research in this area and will be illustrated by a case study where a young person struggled with the process of disclosure for over 10 years.
The challenges facing organizations trying to support children in abusive situations will be explored further by War Child drawing upon their participation in an Interagency Study into Child Friendly Complaints Mechanisms. Examples will be given of the particular challenges faced by children and young people in conflict situations.
Lunch & Networking: 12.30 - 13.00 (Lunch will be provided)
Seminar followed by Q&A: 13.00 - 14.00
Location: Room 1A, Development House, 56-64 Leonard Street, EC2A 4LT.
