This series of 4 four-hour workshops will allow practitioners to build on their existing skills and knowledge regarding risk assessing and working with specifically black male children and complete safety plans.

Research has identified that Black young people, particularly Black male children, are experiencing additional risks, which can lead to complexities in the assessment process and continuing work.

Practitioners and others need to be proficient in considering and weighing up issues such as individual, familial, community/contextual risks on the impact on the behaviours of the child/young person.

Increase their knowledge of substances and the emotional/physical impact they have on individuals
