Self-Neglect - Beyond the Basics to Effective Interventions

This is a half-day, face to face session open to social workers, occupational therapists, OT assistants, assistant practitioners and managers, and to employees and volunteers of other organisations in Norfolk who already have a basic understanding of self neglect, the Care Act definition causes and ethical dilemmas involved.

This course aims to provide a safe space for practitioners and managers who already know the signs and symptoms of self neglect and who are aware of the moral and ethical dilemmas involved, to work through a range of case studies and consider the options available to promote the person's well-being, to reduce the risks of harm and to know when a safeguarding response is required.
