The Seen and Heard course is narrated by young people, sharing real experiences about what it’s like to be an abused or exploited child with ‘something to tell’.
Seen and Heard captures the views of young people about what it’s like when you’ve ‘got something to tell.’ You’ll hear what young people need, and what they want from professionals in order to help them feel like they can disclose abuse. By participating, and building your own awareness, you’ll help to ensure opportunities to end abuse aren’t missed….
At the heart of Seen and Heard is an original drama following the experiences of Tyler, and the impact on his family. Learn from Tyler’s story and the behaviours of those around him as he comes into contact with different services.
Seen and Heard is part of the Government’s commitment to train over 750,000 health service staff to raise awareness about what it’s like to be a young person who might have something to disclose. Any health service staff might be with a young person at that critical time when they are thinking about speaking out. The approach they use could be the difference that makes a young person go on to disclose, opening the way for abuse to stop and recovery to start.
Upcoming Course Dates:
* To recognise signs that a child or young person is wanting to disclose sexual abuse and/or exploitation.
