"Reducing Restrictive Practices"
The safest restraint is one that is never used. Most settings supporting adults, children and young people who regularly exhibit distressed behaviours that can challenge staff now view reducing restrictive practices and promoting human rights and person-centred care as a priority. The Restraint Reduction Network Training Standards (2019) and their mandatory introduction for NHS commissioned services in 2020 have encouraged organisations to focus on staff training. However, we continue to see investigations into incidents of restraint and restrictive practices that result in criminal inquiries and make national headlines. Maria Taylor will cover Huckshorn’s Six Core Strategies, an evidence-based model offering a multi-faceted approach to preventing conflict and aggression which can lead to the use of restrictive practices. She will explore the use of the model and participants will leave with strategies and tools to either introduce or embed the model within their organisation.
How Dudley Safeguarding People Partnership have been able to improve outcomes for those at risk through a data-led approach for statutory and non-statutory evaluation of training and practice; whilst managing processes better, unlocking data, and preparing for future challenges.
This presentation will explore the factors that drive children and young people’s behaviour, and how we can promote digital literacy, digital resilience and wellbeing so they can thrive online and offline.

Miriam will be sharing a case study which is an example of good multi-agency working between colleagues in education, children’s social care, police, health and LADOs in three local authorities. This is a case study regarding a self-employed nanny who sexually abused eleven children in six different families across two local authorities. It will outline the timeline of events and actions taken by each agency to safeguard the children. We will then move into reflections around the childhood experiences of the offender and their presentation at the time of offending. The session will conclude with a discussion around practice dilemmas and sharing learning.
