Course Information

Safeguarding Workshop – postponed to 2021

When: 28 Mar 2020
Where: Greencoat Place, London
Tutor: Sarah Millband

This workshop is being offered to share Good Practice in Safeguarding and to raise awareness of our legal responsibilities to ensure that in offering mindfulness-based courses, we’re attending comprehensively to the safety of the people we are working with. 

The good practice requirements in mindfulness-based teaching set out the need for conducting an orientation and assessment process with potential participants, in order to consider whether making the journey through an 8 week course will be a safe and wise choice for each person.  Some of the people taking part in a mindfulness course – and those associated with them – may be vulnerable in other ways, however, including by being at risk of experiencing harm, abuse and neglect. 

This workshop will raise awareness of our role in safeguarding vulnerable adults and children and young people that we, and those we are supervising, are in connection with.  We will also be learning about our legal responsibilities and Duty of Care, as well as the requirement to adhere to Safeguarding Policies and Procedures.

Learning Intentions:

  • Raising awareness of our role in safeguarding both adults and children and young people from harm, abuse and neglect
  • Recognising the importance of raising awareness of safeguarding issues within supervision
  • Understanding the legislation that protects individuals from harm, abuse and neglect
  • Recognising different forms of harm, abuse and neglect
  • Identifying our responsibilities to adhere to Safeguarding Policy and to understand processes for raising concerns, reporting concerns and responding to disclosures
