The Trilogy of Risk

The Trilogy of Risk relates to risk factors surrounding Family Violence, Parental Substance Misuse and Parental Mental Illness (often in this context, undiagnosed or untreated). Case analysis has shown many significant child abuse cases have reflected at least one if not all three of these factors.

This engaging and informative 2.5hr online class helps Learners take a condensed look at the trilogy and its potential impact on a child/young person living in an environment where the trilogy may be a feature. This learning is often of most interest to those working:

~ With adults-at-risk/vulnerable adults 

~ Supporting families with multiple or complex needs (statutory or community frameworks).

~ Professionals from Social, Health and Education sectors.

~ Staff with specific safeguarding responsibilities, e.g. lead/designated staff, safeguarding champions, etc.

Currently Only Available As An In-House Exclusive Class

Please note, Learners should have already completed their  safeguarding and child protection learning prior to this training. If this remains outstanding our Safeguarding and Child Protection Online Classes or eLearning courses may be of interest.
