Safeguarding Lead Series: self-care and self-aware

19 November @ 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Course outline:

Leading safeguarding, welfare services and delivering front-line safeguarding work has never been more challenging. We know that faulty decision-making, minimisation, errors in recording and decision-making are more likely when practitioners are unable to pay attention to self-awareness and self-care.


This seminar focuses on the importance of ongoing attention to self-awareness and self-care activity supporting practitioner wellbeing and safer working practice

Training topics will include:

  • Working in challenging circumstances
  • Am I OK?
  • The links between wellbeing and safe practice
  • Strategies to maintain self-awareness
  • Conscious attention to self-care

Learning outcomes:

  • Consider the links between practitioner self-awareness and suitability for practice
  • Explore the relationship between self-awareness, self-care and safer working practice
  • Take away tools and strategies to regularly evaluate their own welfare and self-awareness
  • Be invited to consider how self-awareness and self-care activity supports leadership, mentoring, coaching and decision-making activity in their particular role.

Audience: Safeguarding leaders, DSL’s and DDSL’s, Pastoral Support workers, Senior Leaders
