Think Family Approach
As part of National Safeguarding Week, the North Wales Safeguarding Board will be holding a virtual workshop on the learning from a national review undertaken by Dr Michael Preston Shoot in relation to Think Family approach. Recent learning from a Child Practice Review highlighted the impact of parental self-neglect on the child.
Situations when a Think Family approach is needed:
Families with adults and children, where adult and children services need to work in partnership with each other as well as in partnership with the family to ensure that all members of the family’s needs are met effectively.
Intergenerational families consisting of all adults, e.g. older parent/s living with adult children with mental health needs/learning and/or physical disabilities. As people are living longer and are supported in the community rather than institutions intergenerational families are becoming more common.
Families with multiple needs (e.g. educational, health, and social) with large numbers of agencies working with them. The issue here is about working in a way that is family led and best meets the needs of the family.
Trainer: Michael Preston Shoot
