It is largely understood that working with children requires a great many skills - and direct work with children and their families is especially delicate. This course will look at providing learners with practical skills and theoretical underpinnings to assist with assessments and ongoing work with service users.

The use of the “Signs of Safety” tools requires focused and reflective assessment and care planning and much of the course will focus on both the reasoning and the direct tools used in this work. It will look at the ‘Three Houses’ tool as well as other models to enable children to express feelings to assess strengths and concerns within families.

Learning Objectives:

  1. The purpose and importance of direct work with children in gaining an understanding of the child’s views, wishes and feelings - as well as working with children in relation to specific needs
  2. Planning of direct work – having a focus / purpose of the session, identifying the appropriate tools, preparing the logistics of the session, preparing the child or young person
  3. Skills required working directly with children and young people
  4. Consider a range of methods in enabling children to communicate in many ways and how you might engage with them
  5. Explore direct work methods / tools and have an opportunity to consider how and when they can be used
