Child Protection Training

This training will provide you with a basic knowledge of Children First Guidelines (2011), you will learn how to recognise child protection and welfare concerns, how to respond appropriately to those concerns and, finally, you will understand the importance of child protection policies, procedures and practices to your psychotherapeutic practice. This workshop is suited to therapists working in private practice, or in a private capacity for organisations.
