20 January 2021

Download Event to Calendar

This course will address areas of risk and uncertainty in assessment and planning in terms of parental capacity and potential effects on children.  The trainer will examine how certain - or otherwise- we can be of possible outcomes, and the causes of them?  What are the limits and boundaries of professional decision-making in these areas, based on what information?  We will consider theories and models of risk assessment, and their practical applications.

Trainer:  Professor Brian Littlechild, Research Lead for Social Work, University of Hertfordshire/Vice President, European Research Institute for Social Work/Expert Adviser, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence
