Training professionals

We hope you are keeping safe and well in these strange and uncertain times. I imagine many services are needing to adapt to new ways of working as we are. We’ve needed to postpone some courses and lockdown happened before one course was completed! It’s been a steep learning curve and quite a Risk on Purpose to face the challenge of creating versions of our training courses and parent courses to run online together with a forthcoming socially distanced Level 1 course for a school federation. Our confidence in providing these courses online has grown and thanks to the very kind feedback and encouragement from the families and professionals who have attended. We are now feeling excited to be able to offer more.

We are pleased to say that our summer 2020 parent groups have successfully run online and Protective Behaviours (Foundation) Level 1 training using zoom.

Our next online Protective Behaviours training course is in September. Dates and details are under ‘What’s coming up’. As it is not yet safe enough, our ‘face to face’ training and parent groups remain postponed and we hope these will resume in the not too distant future.

Working With Parents and Carers

Families Feeling Safe – A Protective Behaviours programme for Mums, Dads & Carers

We are funded by HCC Targeted Parenting fund to deliver our evidence-based Families Feeling Safe Protective Behaviours programme. We have adapted our course to run online and sessions are shorter with learning packs and activities sent out to parents and carers to support the online sessions. The funding is allocated to certain areas of Hertfordshire however as courses will again run online in the Autumn term we can accept referrals from other districts if eligibility criteria is met.
