MASTERCLASS: Positive risk taking in safeguarding adults

INTERACTIVE INTRODUCTORY LEARNING   for Adult Social Care Staff within the South Yorkshire Teaching Partnership 

 Sheffield Hallam University, Charles Street Building City Campus, Sheffield

Thursday 18 July 2019 at 9:00 – 16:00

Risk assessment and risk management have long been a major concern for social care services when working with members of the public. In supporting and working with adults there are several challenges in terms of understanding legal and ethical tensions, and in developing the skills for recognising and responding. This one day programme will explore some of these challenges and build knowledge and skills for practice. It will be relevant for people whose roles bring them into contact with adults where there are potential issues of risk, vulnerability and safeguarding.

This event is facilitated by Louise Whitehead from Sheffield Hallam University. Her background is in adult social work and adult safeguarding. She is currently completing a Ph.D. exploring the role of co-production in combating social isolation and loneliness in later life. Her research interests also include adult safeguarding and she has recently been part of the Sheffield Hallam University research team which has explored the implementation of Making Safeguarding Personal. She has worked in lecturing and as a professional trainer too.

This masterclass has been commissioned especially for social care staff across South Yorkshire Teaching Partnership.  There is a small charge of £50 per person to cover the cost of the masterclass and therefore we regret that there will be no refunds should you fail to attend or cancel.  We will ask you to provide us with your business cost centre code prior to confirmation of booking.
