Friday 21st June: Adultification and Safeguarding Black Children

As safeguarding professionals, we have a duty to protect the most vulnerable members of our society. Unfortunately, the concept of adultification and institutional racism can have a detrimental impact on the lives of black children.

In our efforts to make decisions with thresholds of intervention, we must be mindful of how agencies often collude with these harmful practices. By prioritizing child-centered thinking, we can work towards creating a more equitable and just system for all children. We will explore this in the workshop in greater detail.

Let's continue to educate ourselves and others about the impact of adultification and institutional racism on black children, and work towards creating a better future for all.

Participants will be encouraged to relate to their own practice and take away action points.

Wednesday 19th June: Cultural Strengths as Therapeutic Tools for Decolonisation: Pathways to safe futures

Kia ora, Namaste, Salaam from Aotearoa!

In this session, we welcome Luanna Swindells and Sarah Maindonald to lead us in a presentation titled, "Cultural strengths as therapeutic tools for decolonisation: pathways to safe futures"

This session will explore ways of working that are mana enhancing and bring client cultural strengths to the fore.

Often the impacts of colonisation fragment identities, create disconnection and detach clients from the positive resources that are inherent in their culture.

A sense of belonging and positive identity is key to healthy functioning and can  expand the client’s lens to include dimensions of taha wairua—spirituality, taha whānau—social connectedness/family, taha hinengaro –emotions and cognitions, taha tinana—somatic aspects.

The strengths of indigenous and other minority cultures are often rendered invisible in western clinical practice. This holistic view provides a model which can be applied universally as a decolonization tool.  

This presentation aims to offer an alternative lens when working with clients  from diverse identities which is culturally inclusive and holistic.

Participants will be encouraged to relate to their own practice and take away action points.

Speakers: Luana Swindells and Sarah Maindonald

Tuesday 4th  October - Conducting Assessments in Childcare Proceedings: Understanding the wider context

Dr Sam Warner, Chair AoCPP

12.00pm – 1.30pm

In this session, Sam will be arguing for an inclusive evidence-base where values and language matter and are understood to frame assessment and intervention in intra-familial child sexual abuse. Sam will start by providing an overview of key issues in intra-familial child sexual abuse including considering how the silencing tactics of abuse traumatises children and adults. She also outlines key ways children and adults cope with abuse and consider how these coping strategies can impact memory; and she identifies wider developmental, familial and cultural factors which further impact survival and recovery. She will then outline how to conduct assessments with children and adults within families where sexual abuse has occurred. A trauma-based model of assessment and intervention is presented that encompasses abuse, relationships and risk. This trauma-based approach is used to make recommendations for how to work with those that cause harm, those that are harmed and those who may need help and support to protect others from harm.
