Details of the Workshops


Annice Thomas - A "hands on" practical approach to working with children with neglect issues

As a professional working with neglected and traumatised children can be very challenging.  This workshop will give you practical ideas and skills that not only enhance your working relationship with the child but give the child a voice through fun and creative play.


Professor David Shemmings OBE

Action 4 Children

The neglect of older children


Troubled Families - the way forward

This workshop will unfold the developing world of supportthrough the Troubled Families programme and what it can do to aid your work.  Hear from someone who has been through the programme who shares their experiences and what it has meant to her.


Serious Case Review - Julia

Explore the learning and lessons from our recent SCR "Julia". This workshop will exam not only learning from the case but also how different approaches to conducting serious case reviews are developing.


Chronologies - Are we getting it right?

Serious Case Reviews (SCR) is undertaken when:-

- abuse or neglect of a child is known or suspected; and

- either - (i) the child has died; or (ii) the child has been seriously harmed and there is cause for concern as to the way in which the authority, their Board partners or other relevant persons have worked together to safeguard the child.

Following the Munro Review and Report, Working Together 2013 made some changes to the way cases were reviewed.  The Thurrock LSCB in the last two years have commissioned two Serious Case Reviews (SCR) and one multi-agency NSPCC light tough review.

This workshopwill look at "What a good case review chronology looks like" and how we complete and analyse chronologies.  This will be underpinned by the three cases mentioned above.   A chronology template will be provided for this workshop.


Disguised Compliance - Neale Laurie and Cassandra Moore

"The parents are co-operative"

This workshop will explore the above statement and the dangers associated with making assumptions about apparent co-operation.  With some practical advice regarding managing this.
