Advanced Safeguarding Training for Professionals working with offenders and ex-offenders
Working with offenders and ex-offenders can be particularly difficult and challenging even when it is done with the best intentions. Fishmonger Hall (2019) is a stark example of how false positives and false negatives can quickly lead to unstable risk assessments and problematic rehabilitation plans.
Whilst there is never any certainty in working with risk, preparing, and enhancing the knowledge and skill sets of professionals working in this arena can establish confidence in evidence-based approaches and support positive outcomes for offenders. The overall aim is to aid smoother transition out of prison and reduce the likelihood of re-offending.
This training includes a strong focus on how to work effectively with risk assessment and risk management, understanding the impact of false positives and false negatives, managing your own bias and breaking the cycle of intergenerational offending patterns and attitudes and much more.
