Emma conducted the training in a professional and friendly manner whilst affording her trainee’s plenty opportunities to discuss ideas and comment on issues as they related to the trainee’s own personal experiences. This enabled clarification not only from a legal perspective but also produced a deeper and broader insight into what constitutes child abuse and neglect. I particularly found valuable the primacy of a ‘child focus’ approach in relation to assessing child abuse and how our values and attitudes impact our assessment of others. Emma was encouraging and knowledgeable throughout this process."
