“I feel much more confident now in being able to have open conversations with children and their families. The point that ‘what if I'm right?’ will stick with me, rather than doubting if I am wrong. Such a difficult topic shared so easily and smoothly – felt at ease through the session.” Key Worker
“I feel more confident that I can talk to children and young people and their experiences without being so concerned that I may say the wrong thing.” Social Worker
“I just wanted to say you delivered one of the best courses I have been on. Your compassion and knowledge on the subject was really inspiring and thought provoking. You have changed how I work, improved it, and I will be carrying that on forevermore really.” Child Sexual Abuse Practice Leads Programme attendee
“I have not really considered child sexual abuse before today, and I realise how unprepared I would have been if a child disclosed to me without partaking of this training. I have learnt so much about all aspects of abuse and I know I will be a better social worker for it. Whatever area of social work I go into there will probably be people who have been sexually abused, which is why they are having contact with services. This knowledge will help me to understand and assist service users better.” Child Sexual Abuse Practice Leads Programme attendee
“The facilitator has been supportive of difficult cases and has been there for emotional support too. Her approach makes us feel safe. We can be open. We don’t need to be as mindful of our communication and saying the wrong thing.” Child Sexual Abuse Practice Leads Programme attendee
