This course will cover key areas of risk management covering harm to others, self and simply the risk of avoiding negative outcomes for service users. This course will explore initial assessments and how they feed into risk management plans. This training culminates in how to devise an effective exit plan which is person centred that works towards successful outcomes. Risk management and effective planning and assessment are key to success for all organisations and any plans should seek to empower professionals to make decisions which fit with ‘defensible practice’ and effective strategies. This training will provide participants with an understanding of social pedagogy and how to underpin these principles within the areas of assessment, risk management and exit planning.
Looking at the internal and external locus of control participants will develop unique assessments which are both inspection ready and effective. Clear models provide confidence for professionals in assessing strengths, risks and capacity allowing for more effective plans and better outcomes.
Research shows that risk competent children have fewer accidents, less complex behaviour, and improved outcomes. This course requires participants to reflect on what this means within a professional environment. The use of critical reflection is a key component of all assessments, and this course will consider what this means when considering both dynamic and static factors.
Models such as solution focused therapy and internal/ external locus of control allow practitioners to evidence clear thinking and methodology whilst empowering those directly involved to be active players in the risk management process. Models also provide a clarity of purpose which allows for more effective engagement for complex you people and adults allowing for a fully effective partnership.
