Together for Families is holding another Learning Lessons workshop:
Involving Fathers Across the Partnership: Vulnerability and risk for men, and what this means for children
23 February 9.30am-1.30pm
This online learning lessons workshop will be facilitated by Professor Brigid Featherstone, Professor of Social Work and Associate Director, Centre for Applied Childhood, Youth and Family Research, University of Huddersfield and Dr Marion Russell, Head of Service, Practice Development and Safeguarding Standards Service, Cornwall Council.
In recent years a growing body of research has evidenced the importance of fathers in the development of their children. The value of engaging positively with fathers is increasingly clear from research as are the risks of not effectively understanding the roles they can have with their children.
A recurring theme in Serious Case Reviews, Rapid Reviews, and other processes when children have died or been seriously injured is the role of fathers and other significant men in the lives of children. It continuously features in audits of practice across all agencies, and is a current focus of the National Panel.
This workshop is an opportunity for practitioners working with children and their families in Cornwall to explore the learning from research in the context of local experience and to identify effective ways of working with fathers in all organisations across the partnership.
