The Impact of Harmful Practices on CYP

13th January 2017 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm GMT



This course aims to enhance practitioners’ knowledge, skills and understanding of how race, culture and/or faith and belief systems can impact on our safeguarding children practice. The course will also focus on the roles and responsibilities of practitioners, the legal framework and how to identify risk factors.


  • By the end of the course participants will be able to:
  • Describe the influence of own and families’ race, culture, faith or beliefs on the parenting of children
  • Display confidence in talking about their own and other people’s attitudes and beliefs – and how these might affect their judgment when providing services to children and families
  • Demonstrate good practice skills in these areas when leading or joining in assessments or offering any other services to children and their families
  • List the key features of the legal framework related to harmful practices including honour based violence (HBV), Forced Marriage, Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Faith Based Violence (FBV)
  • Outline the key local issues related to the course topics
  • Work with families and communities to change behaviours
  • Develop a better understanding of key harmful traditional practices in BMER communities and the roles that culture plays and its influence on child upbringing in many communities.
