Resources for Professionals

Welcome to the P4P child-centred practice training resource for professionals working with children who have experienced violence. 

Under the pictures below you will find links to the training resources.

Overview: Taking all of the information children provided us with through surveys, focus groups and workshops, we worked with two advisory groups of children to develop the following resources:

  • A Training package: includes a facilitators manual and four modules on the key themes emerging from all of our work with children – 1. Children and young people’s experiences and understandings of violence; 2. Children and young people’s help seeking behaviours; 3. Children’s rights and violence; 4. Services and supports. In the section on additional resources are further resources trainers might want to use when delivering training on some or all of these topics.
  • A Consultation pack: for those who want to explore the issue of violence with children in an ethical, sensitive and non-intrusive manner.
  • A Child-centred Checklist: based on children’s views of ‘good’ or effective engagement when they have experienced violence and needed support. Professionals can use this to assess their own practice from a child’s perspective.
  • Additional resources: we collected lots of information in this project that can be used by professionals, trainers or students to inform their work and their practice. This includes:
    • Country-specific information on safeguarding standards and reporting mechanisms
    • a questionnaire co-designed with children;
    • a summary of the results from the survey (all countries);
    • a summary of the results from NI;
    • a summary of findings from focus groups with vulnerable groups;
    • 6 factsheets on the experiences of six groups at risk of experiencing violence (children in care; children in conflict with the law, child migrants and refugees, children who identify as LGBTQ+, children who experience family/domestic violence, Traveller/Roma children)
  • Resources for children and young people:
    • A child-friendly summary of the survey findings
    • A sign posting leaflet for children. This was designed by the advisory groups as a way to inform other children about violence, and some local supports.
    • A short animation co-produced by children.
