As the call for workshops using arts for health increases, many artists and writers find themselves alone working with groups out in the community. This can be a rewarding experience, but can often feel isolating particularly when disclosures occur or situations become difficult.
The aim of this workshop is to develop thinking around safeguarding requirements and where our responsibilities begin and end. We will look at safeguarding legislation and duty of care along with offering thinking around personal boundaries when working with vulnerable groups.
By the end of the workshop you will have an understanding of basic safeguarding requirements and around your own personal boundaries and how to deal with difficult situations when they arise.
Suitable for all writers and artists facilitating workshops or interested in gaining training in this area.
