Target Group:

Course Aims:

Suitable for all practitioners and managers of the multi-agency workforce on the IW, this open forum is an opportunity for IW child practitioners and managers to consult with the IW/Hampshire FCAMHS service on a variety of subjects including:

  • Discuss cases of concern/raise professional queries in relation to cases assessed as posing a risk to others and/or evidencing harmful sexual behaviours.
  • Explore academic or theoretical developments in relation to the FCAMHS field with a view to increasing awareness of them and how they impact on other areas of work.
  • Agreement of actions for intervention which may form part of plans to address or manage risks identified.

Attendance at this forum will enable staff to:

  • Develop their knowledge and skills in relation to the management of cases demonstrating a risk of serious harm to others and/or harmful sexual behaviour.
  • Development of professional networking amongst the children's workforce in relation to complex cases.
