Individuals working with Children may hear disclosures of sexual harm or having completed the training feel more able to ask open and curious questions about what might be happening to a child this may lead to disclosure of either prior child sexual abuse or more recent rape and sexual assault.

This course will provide you with a framework for supporting children who disclose. The course includes examples of best practice, information about your role and responsibility in safeguarding. Best practice in supporting a child who discloses and how to refer onwards. Having completed the training you will be more equipped to manage these challenging situations with confidence and insight.
