Kent’s Centre for Child Protection has developed a masterclass focusing on the issue of child neglect.
Aimed at professionals and carers, the masterclass explores the range of issues surrounding neglect including:
- Lessons learnt from recent high profile cases
- Different forms of neglect
- Interagency perspectives
- Professional responsibility and the challenges of direct work with children who have suffered neglect
Notes: The Centre for Child Protection at the University of Kent is a centre of excellence and innovation in training, research and practice. Co-Directors Professor David Shemmings and Dr Jane Reeves established the Centre following the Munro Review (2011), which stressed that Continuing Professional Development is crucial for professionals working to safeguard and protect children. The Centre received the Times Higher Education award for ‘Outstanding ICT initiative of the year’ in 2013 for its work on developing avatar-based simulations to deliver professional training and qualifications.
