This event is of interest to those working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Speakers include those speaking from a survivor perspective, and clinicians working with survivors. There will be an overview of the issues facing survivors and consideration of Trauma Informed Practice. The event will also highlight the BPS Guidance on Managing Disclosures of Non-Recent Child Sexual Abuse, launched in 2016, and which highlights the role of psychologists within safeguarding. The event is relevant to psychologists working across a variety of settings, across the life span, and is relevant to the work of clinicians as well as managers.
