Successful training day on CSE in the Wirral

Posted: February 5, 2013 in Uncategorized

‘Brilliant.’ ‘Fantastic.’ ‘Superb.’ These are just some of the comments made from attendees at the Child Sexual Exploitation Training Day hosted in the Wirral yesterday. Delivered by Marilyn Haughton, attendees were exposed to the realities of Child Sexual Exploitation through the retelling of real life events which, coupled with training on how to tackle CSE, allowed the group to become well informed upon the subject.

The training session allowed front line practitioners and teachers to discover the importance and prevalence of Child Sexual Exploitation in this country. Coupled with the distribution of the ‘Love or Lies?’ Education Resource pack, the group were taught how to use the My Dangerous Loverboy film and accompanying lesson plans to engage with young people and incite discussion upon healthy relationships. After watching the My Dangerous Loverboy, the group were able to experiment how to use the ‘Love or Lies’ pack by looking through the eyes of a young person whilst others practised delivering the resource as teachers and practitioners.

Using her years of work in the field, Marilyn Haughton used her own experiences to put Child Sexual Exploitation into context for the group. As an experienced practitioner, counsellor and vice chair of the National Working Group for Sexually Exploited Children and Young People, Marilyn is an esteemed leader in this field. Attendees commented that she was both ‘very informed,’ and ‘down to earth,’ with an overwhelming consensus that the training that was delivered was ‘excellent.’

We would like to thank the Public Protection Unit at the NHS in the Wirral for holding the event.
However, we would like to thank most all the participants who attended the event yesterday for their contribution and input throughout the whole day which sparked motivating and engaging discussions.
