All professionals have a statutory responsibility to safeguard children and vulnerable adults. This course examines and evaluates knowledge and skills, in line with the emotional well-being and mental health of the child and its family, to understand and identify risks and vulnerability and to consider the concept of resilience and its promotion.
The course is delivered collaboratively from a number of perspectives – child health, child and adolescent mental health, and social care – and is taught with contributions from experts in the field.
