Systemic Investigation, Protection and Prosecution Strategies (SIPPS): Risk Assessment and Child Safeguarding 

Welcome to This Modular Training Programme 

The online content in these pages will offer the opportunity to revise the content of the taught course, access supplementary reading, news and media and additional learning activities. The pages will be updated as the programme develops and we hope to provide information and advice in response to themes or frequent questions that emerge from practitioners during the programme via the SIPPS Moodle 
The module is designed to reflect the principles of “Reclaiming Social Work” by framing the principles and practice of risk assessment and safety planning within a general theory of systemic social work practice.  
These principles run as themes and points of reference through each of the subsequent modules and establish consistency of teaching, practice and supervision. 
This Module builds on Module 1 and introduces the Family Risk and Safety Assessment as a tool for assessing the risk of harm through physical abuse, emotional abuse and neglect.  
The module combines the theoretical concepts of Module 1 with the practical application to a complex case study and administration of the FRaSA tool. 
This module builds on Module 2, Child Physical Abuse, Emotional Abuse and Neglect: The Family Risk and Safety Assessment (FRaSA) by dealing with the Star items in the FRaSA Descriptors. It will also highlight other risk issues such as early and forced marriage, criminal exploitation and sexual exploitation and radicalisation that are specific to children who are approaching or in adolescence. 
This module builds on Module 3 by revisiting some of the specific issues relating to adolescents as well as exploring sexual risk in relation to younger children and infants. It will provide a methodology of risk assessment that to systematically measure the level of risk / harm that children may be exposed to or have experienced in specific relation to sexual abuse. It will also devlop interventions and approaches for working with children who have been sexually abused, or may have been and have yet to disclose such abuse and identify strategies to reduce the risk of secondary victimisation as witnesses in criminal and civil proceedings and processes. 
This module draws on modules 3 and 4 to focus specifically upon the needs of children with harmful sexual behaviours. It will provide practitioners with a risk assessment pathway that is consistent with the standards and processes established in all four previous modules enabling them to make balanced, evidenced based judgements and proportionate, defensible decisions and recommendations.
