The aim of this one day event is to explore the issue of neglect and its impact on children and families. It will not only focus on the nature and definition of neglect but will also on the profile of neglectful parents. The event will also provide information on evidenced based, effective assessment tools which can assist social work staff in recognising the signs of neglect, the risk of neglect and whether a child is in need or at risk of harm. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of early intervention and working with the family to mitigate the impact of neglect on children.
