Signs, symptoms and effects of neglect

Children who don’t get the love and care they need from their parents may find it difficult to maintain healthy relationships with other people later in life, including their own children. Children who have been neglected are more likely to experience mental health problems including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Young people may also take risks, such as running away from home, breaking the law, abusing drugs or alcohol, or getting involved in dangerous relationships - putting them at risk from sexual exploitation. Effects on relationships and attachment A parent or carer's behaviour has a big impact on a child.

Results. Breaking the Links in Intergenerational Violence: An Emotional Regulation Perspective - Siegel - 2013 - Family Process. Breaking the cycle of abuse. Child abuse – which has dominated the headlines over the past year as a result of the Savile inquiry and other high-profile child-cruelty cases, and which is often presented as one of the country's most intractable problems – could be reduced by 70% by the year 2030, delegates to a Guardian debate were told.

Breaking the cycle of abuse

Plenty of research exists, and more work is being carried out, that shows what could and would lead to a dramatic reduction in the incidence of maltreatment of children. The biggest difficulty is persuading not only decision-makers, but also the public, that preventing child abuse is possible, given the right steps. But what's needed first, participants at the roundtable debate – sponsored by the NSPCC – heard, is a shift in the way the media perceives the problem: too often, one participant remarked, tabloid-newspaper coverage focuses on a witch-hunt and not on the issues that create a culture in which abuse is allowed to continue. Surprising evidence Internet safety At the table. Professional responses to neglect: in the child’s time. Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015. On the 26th March 2015, the government published ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015’.

Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015

This is a revised version of the previous guidance from 2013. Many of the revisions have been made to incorporate legislation or statutory guidance that has been set out over the last couple of years. This revised document also makes it clear that safeguarding and child protection guidance applies to all schools and colleges whatever their status or constitution. Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015 is the key document that sets outs what local authorities should do.

This also includes “adult services, the police, academy trusts, education, youth justice services and the voluntary and community sector who have contact with children and families”.

Working Together to Safeguard Children under fire. Working Together to Safeguard Children is too long, cumbersome and unwieldy, say professional bodies and social workers. The criticism came in response to the consultation on a revised version of the government’s key guidance on safeguarding which has now closed. The British Association of Social Workers (BASW) has suggested the guidance be divided into two documents, one a practitioner guide to safeguarding, the other regarding arrangements made by local safeguarding children boards and agencies to safeguard children. The size of the guidance – 300 pages – has alarmed other organisations, including the Local Government Association (LGA). Basw 115513 5. What social workers need to know about new child protection guidance. Given the strong reaction when the then children and families minister, Tim Loughton, first unveiled plans to cut child protection guidance, it is a shame the government did not respond to the consultation before publishing the guidance.

There are political motivations behind this latest announcement. Firstly, the pledge to "cut red tape" echoed findings from social policy expert Prof Eileen Munro, brought in by the education secretary, Michael Gove, to assess the child protection system in England following the death of Baby Peter. Munro found that individuals had become obsessed with maintaining administrative systems rather than being free to "do the right thing" to protect children. Secondly, when Doncaster council produced a heavily redacted serious case review (SCR) after two young brothers were convicted of torturing a nine-year-old and an 11-year-old, Gove ordered Lord Carlile of Berriew to conduct an inquiry. Will the new guidance fundamentally change things for social workers? LSGL01. Impact%20Assessment%20Working%20Together%20to%20Safeguard%20Children.
