This workshop has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

Child fatality reviews continue to show us that while families engage in dangerous dynamics that lead to harm so unfortunately can the professionals and agencies working with them.   Inadvertently contributing to a poor outcome for a child, young person or family member can have a devasting effect on workers and often leads to resignation from the profession. This one-day workshop with facilitator Dr Nicki Weld provides an in-depth look at the concept of professional dangerousness in relation to child and family work and explores individual and organisation dangerous dynamics that can occur.
