The Toxic Trio and Child Protection. Beyond the headlines

Monday, 9 March 2019
 
The term “Toxic Trio” in child protection, is often used to describe instances where there is domestic abuse, parent substance misuse and / or parent mental health issues.  Research has shown that more and more children are living in families where all three factors are present.
 
This conference will look behind the raw numbers and examine what this means in reality.  What does ‘toxic trio’ mean and how should professionals including social workers, Guardians and lawyers approach this area of work both in a humane manner and in a way that can offer protection to children?
 
The conference will hear from leading professionals who work in this field and will be chaired byMr Jerry Bull a Director with Atkins Hope Solicitors who has extensive experience in complex legal work with children and families.
 
More details coming soon.
