This one day training course is organised by South Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board Training Group and is targeted at all staff from all agencies who are working directly with children, or adults who are parents. Effective child protection depends not only on reliable and accepted procedures for all staff involved with children, but also on their skills, knowledge and judgement and the ability to work together co-operatively. Staff with lead roles in child protection require specialised training in order to carry out their work with abused children and families. Please note it is recommended to leave a minimum of 3 months between attending Inter Agency Child Protection and Advanced Inter Agency Child Protection.Essential Information
Understanding the psychological processes that lead to unconscious biases.
Exploring the unconscious biases in psychiatric practice, to do with how meaning is understood post the enlightenment age when reason (defined by the West) is privileged and how that affects how people’s stories (formulations) are subordinate to the science of psychiatry, which is not as robust as we believe.
Additionally, the course explores antiracist and feminist critiques and relates patriarchy to the gendered patterns in psychiatry (lower diagnosis of depression in men; higher BDP in women etc) and intersections between aspects of identity as evidenced in data, such as race and gender or gender and sexual orientation.
The exercises help delegates to see how racialised understandings and heteronormative and established gender norms influence their practice unconsciously and how this shows up in patterns in data not solely due to AMHP practice but failures to take account of pertinent information
