Self Neglect & Adult Safeguarding: Responding to Self Neglect & Hoarding during Covid-19



The Covid-19 pandemic has created new levels of isolation and loneliness for people increasing the risk of self-neglect. Self-neglect can be a complex and challenging issue for practitioners because of the need to find the balance between respecting a person’s autonomy and fulfilling a duty to protect the adult’s health and well-being.

This conference which features extended interactive sessions focuses on the difficult issue of self neglect and adult safeguarding during Covid-19 and includes an extended focus on hoarding. Through national updates, practical case studies and extended interactive group work the conference will cover self neglect, meeting the statutory safeguarding guidance, safeguarding people who self neglect: the evidence and what works, developing guidance for professionals when dealing with self neglect during Covid-19 and resistance to engage with services, an extended session on hoarding, and an extended session on dealing with the underlying causes of self neglect working in partnership with people who are self neglecting in a multidisciplinary way.

Therapeutic work with children and young people suffering child sexual abuse and exploitation



This Masterclass programme, facilitated by Dr Arnon Bentovim and Carol Jolliffe, will help practitioners working in social care, health, education and youth justice to deliver effective therapeutic work with children subject to sexual abuse and exploitation. The approach recognises that sexual abuse and exploitation occur in a context of significant adversity, and is based in Trauma Informed Practice which recognises common responses to adversity in childhood are traumatic, and such responses in association with a variety of social, psychological and genetic influences can trigger an extensive set of complex overlapping physical, behavioural and mental health responses.
