This online course will consider what experiences children and young people may have had, what your role is, and how to respond if they disclose harm or abuse to you. We look at recording, reporting and who should be involved, as well as the emotional and behavioural impacts it may have upon them.
We consider you and how you may feel, having been involved in a disclosure, what practical steps you can take to process your emotional reaction and where to go to access support. We will also provide you with links to additional reading materials or sites that we think you will find useful and there are some videos to watch along the way.
The types and definitions of harm and abuse are covered in our course "Safeguarding and protecting children and young people in residential childcare". This course follows on from the safeguarding course, therefore, we recommend that you do the safeguarding course first.
