Excellence in Practice Seminar: Key Note Speaker Professor David Shemmings

18th January 2019 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Please join Croydon Council Early Help & Children’s Social Care in a free Excellence in Practice seminar with key note speaker Professor David Shemmings who will be exploring recent studies into a range on interventions – which have so far included Strengths-based approaches, Signs of Safety, Motivational Interviewing, Restorative Justice and Family Group Conferencing, offering powerful insights into what makes new innovations effective or ineffective. What needs to underpin all forms of help and support to families are a number of key relationship factors. During this session Professor Shemmings will look at this research and draw out very practical ‘take home’ messages. You will also hear from Robert Henderson, Executive Director Children Families and Education, People and Nick Pendry, Director for Early Help & Children’s Social Care. You will hear about Early Help and Children’s Social Care learning & development opportunities as well as our career progression pathways in Children’s Social Care.
