The course will cover making and/or receiving referrals regarding child care and child protection issues from staff in Children’s Social Care, Education, Schools, Early Years, PVI (Private, Voluntary Independent), Health, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), Mental Health Teams and Youth Offending Teams, who are working with children and families or staff from Adult Social Care/Mental Health working with adults who have children.
Participants will learn about procedures when responding to Fabricated Induced Illnesses, the importance of early identification and detailed chronologies when Fabricated Induced Illness is suspected, and histories of Fabricated Induced Illness from the victim’s perspective.
