Best Interests Case Practice Model Framework

Thursday March 9, 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Course Overview

The Best Interests Case Practice Model provides a foundation for working with children, including the unborn child, young people and families. It aims to reflect the case practice directions arising from the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 (CYFA) and the Child Wellbeing and Safety Act 2005.

This 6-hour workshop (delivered over two sessions) provides the practitioner with the necessary skills and knowledge on how to embed a Best Interest Case Practice Model (BICPM) framework into their practice when working with children, young people, carers and families.
