The impact of emotional harm and neglect should not be under-estimated upon children and young people, whether they are living with or without their family. Deliberately attempting to scare or humiliate a child, or excluding, isolating or ignoring them can have devastating consequences on behaviour, self-esteem, and mental health.

Course Objectives:

  • Understand the causes and definitions of emotional abuse and neglect
  • Understand the legal context for intervention
  • Recognise the signs and symptoms and impact of emotional abuse and neglect on child development and outcomes for children
  • Have an awareness of the issues involved in working together - with parents and across professional boundaries
  • Develop methods of understanding and working with the emotional impact on professionals of dealing with emotional abuse and neglect
