The morning session will focus on general safeguarding process and policies, including recognising how to meet personal and organisational legal responsibilities for safeguarding children; how to describe and recognise the four types of abuse and neglect; how to respond effectively when a child wants to disclose, and how to record and refer child protection concerns. The afternoon workshop will introduce the Prevent anti-terrorism intervention, and consider how we can support and protect those people that might be susceptible to radicalisation. We will also look at roles and responsibilities in respect of keeping children and young people safe from sexual exploitation as well as understanding Female Genital Mutilation, the risks and why it is a crime.

  • Four Generations in the Room: the Aims of Attachment-Based Therapy with Individual Adults

    20 March 2020, 9.30 – 4.30pm

    With Linda Cundy (ref: LCM20) £85

    The Salvation Army, Bayhall Road, Tunbridge Wells, TN2 4UT

    The aim of attachment-informed therapy is to help our clients develop more secure relationships – with their partners, families, colleagues, and with themselves. Becoming more resilient, less anxious, chaotic, or rigidly defended also has positive implications for their children. It is an inter-generational model.

    This training day outlines the features of secure attachment that therapy can promote, and will propose particular areas of focus when working with individuals who are anxiously preoccupied, avoidant, or chaotic. It will also draw on research indicating that people who “earn” security through psychotherapy have advantages, particularly as parents, over those who have not faced adversity and have taken their own security for granted.

After four training days with Fegans, I feel like I really know what I’m getting. They are really good days, with very strong teaching. Thank you.

Feedback from attendee, Fegans’ Training

An excellent mix of theory, practice, interaction, and real life examples which has led to me feeling well equipped to launch out and work in a child-led way. Also excellent and very detailed notes were provided.

Feedback from attendee, Fegans’ Training

The combination of theory and opportunity to experience role play and practice for me was very helpful. Open discussion within the group and time to process was also really helpful. There was plenty of time and it was not rushed.

Feedback from attendee, Fegans’ Training

The content was very comprehensive; there was an appreciation for, and a building on the skills I already have.
