Thurrock LSCP are pleased to announce further dates for our Recognising and Responding to Child Sexual Abuse in the family environment Training course.

This course is for anyone who works with Children and Families who would benefit from being able to recognise, assess/refer and support children who are or are suspected of suffering from child sexual abuse which takes place in the family home.  This course includes discussion around sibling abuse as well as looking at the impact of the abuse on all members of the family.

The course aim is that practitioners will be more confident in their safeguarding actions in relation to this challenging area of work and have tools which they can take away to assist them in their work.

  • To have an understanding of the typology and prevalence of intra-familial child sexual abuse, including sibling abuse
  • Have considered how attitudes and beliefs around sexual development can have an influence on our ability to safeguard
  • Have an overview of the legal and statutory guidance as well as local protocols in relation to child sexual abuse.
  • Have considered the common factors for families where child sexual abuse is a feature
  • Have learnt to recognise the indicators of CSA including behavioural and physical markers
  • Have considered the impact of this type of abuse on children, siblings, and parents, both short and long term
  • Have an awareness of good practice and relevant agencies who can offer support and interventions around for children and families
