We have developed a one-day training course aimed at social workers and practitioners working with families affected by complex problems.
The aim of this course is to give practitioners knowledge and understanding of the potential impact of the “toxic trio” of complex issues – parental mental health problems, substance misuse and domestic violence – and their effects on children.
Practitioners will learn:
- How parental mental health problems, substance misuse and domestic violence interact and increase risk when occurring together.
- How to build resilience and promote positive change in families with complex needs whilst keeping the needs of the child central and providing timely protection where appropriate.
This course is supported by NCB’s practitioner handbook ‘A Practical Guide to Early Intervention and Family Support: Assessing Needs and Building Resilience in Families Affected by Parental Mental Health Problems or Substance Misuse’ by Emma Sawyer and Sheryl Burton.
