Aim of the course

  • To help participants become more familiar with the impact on children and young people affected by neglect and emotional abuse and the implications of this for decision making about their welfare.
  • Support participants to recognise and respond to Neglect early.


By the end of the training participants will:

  • Considered recent research findings into physical, psychological and behavioural impact of abuse and neglect on development.
  • Considered the impact of abuse and neglect on physical, emotional, cognitive and behavioural development on children of different ages, culture and disability.
  • Explored the link between emotional and behavioural distress and maltreatment.
  • Identified indicators or abuse/ neglect through observation of parent-child interaction.

An excellent course - I really enjoyed the course and the style of interactive discussions!
