Dr Lisa O'Reilly's workshop will provide valuable tools and techniques for all childcare professionals who engage with children about personal and sensitive issues.

 

Lisa has just completed her PhD entitled “The Voice of Children in Social Work Assessments: What they Say? Or What they Play? The main qualitative study involved the development and delivery of a Play Skills Training Programme. The programme was designed to support social workers in their engagement with children during child protection and welfare assessments. The social workers involved in this part of the study assessed the relevance of the training programme and found numerous improvements in their practice with regard to carrying out investigative interviews and direct work with children during the assessment process. The results of this Irish based research will be shared during the workshop. Although the focus of the research is on communicating with children during child protection and welfare assessments the workshop will provide valuable tools and techniques for all childcare professionals who engage with children about personal and sensitive issues.

2.5 CPD points will be awarded for this event
