Safeguarding measures for the child protection room
Overview of the webinar:
The overall objective of the webinar is to analyse the cross-cutting elements between child safeguarding and the process of casework run in the Barnahus. The webinar will explore the organisational, case management and child protection aspects of Barnahus, the differences and commonalities between the child protection and child safeguarding during the casework with victims/survivors and witnesses of abuse. The potential risks and prevention measures that need to be set in place to not cause harm during the assessment process, the case management and multidisciplinary team meetings. The webinar will be interactive and reflecting the practices of Barnahus by sharing case scenarios of safeguarding concerns during the casework and how those can be addressed. It will include an introduction to the Barnahus quality standards, and how we more broadly think about child safeguarding as an internal policy, and its reflection in the General Code of Conduct and reporting procedures and in the context of case management.
Target audience: Professionals from the social welfare system, Law enforcement agencies, social workers, and psychologists
