Code: LAC/21/014 Session 1: Children in Need – Born to love and to be loved

Delivered by Luke Rogers - BEM Director of Strategy, The Care Leaders. This session helps practitioners understand the issues for young people before they come into care and how this impacts them. In this session we take an overview of the issues that affect children that may lead to them coming into the care system. We look at the child within the systems that affect them, including the family, school, community and wider society. We recognise that what affects children, also affects others and how attachment relationships and trauma are key to understanding what can goes wrong and how children can be supported to recover and become resilient. Please review course objectives for booking instructions, as this is an external event.
