M07: Communicating with Children

Module 07 is concerned with how to appropriately talk to children and adolescents involved in child protection proceedings.

This module acknowledges that communicating with children is different depending on their age and other characteristics. Practitioners working with children in child protection cases need to pace and tailor their communication to meet the individual needs of the children involved. The module stresses that efficient communication requires resources and time. The module highlights a number of core skills that will help to enhance communication between children and professionals.
