Confidentiality – As a childminder I deal with information to do with the children or young people in I care and their families. Some of this is personal and private. Confidentiality refers to the need to handle personal and private information in ways that are appropriate, safe and professional and meet legal requirements. Confidentiality is important, the reason for this are: Trust - The relationships I build with children and young people and their families are central to my care role. If I share their personal information with others who have no need or right to know I risk breaking their trust in me.
If a practitioner has doubts about the welfare of a specific child they may put in for a referral for a CAF (Common Assessment Framework) to assess and determine which other agencies should work together to benefit the needs of this child. With this intervention it will help the child handle or even overcome their needs and develop both emotionally and physically well. Safeguarding children and young people is a social priority that is a strong focus in our school policy, planning and curriculum. The school occasionally sends out letters to parents/carers, advising them on ways of safeguarding their children and making sure they stay healthy and safe by what they eat, how they play and keeping them away from other children when ill. A child or young person that isn’t protected from harm and neglect could result on it having a negative impact on their future. A child that doesn’t feel safe or happy could become withdrawn from their peers and families which would have a profound impact on their emotional and social development and may even fall behind in achieving their educational
this enables us to effectively plan for that particular child. If we have not built up the relationship with the parent then discussing things like this as well as things such as behaviour may prove difficult. It may also make the parent feel uncomfortable leaving their child with someone they feel they cannot talk to or do not entirely trust. It is also imperative that we build up a good relationship with the child so that they can settle in and feel relaxed in the setting. If this relationship is not built then tracking a child’s development and well-being will be harder to do, it will also mean that a child may not be able to express their feelings properly and this can lead to development issues and behaviour problems.
Unit 001 Introduction to Communication in Health Social Care or Children’s and Young People’s Settings Outcome 1: Understand why communication is important in the work setting Identify different reasons why people communicate There are 6 main reasons why people communicate in a children’s setting, they are as follows: To promote relationships and to offer support – this could be social workers arranging regular contact with families ‘’in need’’ and offering support where needed. To maintain relationships – a child’s key worker in a nursery setting will ensure they get to know the child and their family to build and maintain a trusting relationships. To exchange information – this could be a patient visiting their GP, they will supply the doctor with their symptoms and in turn the doctor will make a diagnosis enabling the patient to understand their medical problem in more detail To negotiate and liaise with others – a nursery manager will liaise with parents and other professionals to discuss policies and procedures To express needs and feelings – children and young people will be given the opportunities to express their needs and feelings to adults and get the support they want/require To develop learning – children and young people need to get feedback from practitioners about the progress they are making/have made Explain how effective communication affects all aspects of own work It is important to communicate effectively when working with children and young people, as they will learn to trust and respect you. A better relationship will develop with colleagues, parents and other adults in the setting if you communicate in the right way. It is vital to have a rapport with children and young people, their parent and with work colleagues.
How can communication affect relationships in the work place? Practitioners needs to communicate with their colleagues, parents and other professionals in order to achieve effective practice, it is essential to build good relationships with a range of people. Practitioners who have good communication skills tend to have good relationships with children, parents and other adults. Relationships are built on body language, facial expressions and the way people listen and talk to others. To work effectively we have to communicate information, this will include information such as how the child is feeling, what kind of day they have had, what their play interests are or information regarding their health, referring them to outside agencies like speech therapists.
If respect is established, the individual may confide in you and inform you of any changes in their family unit or how they feel about a certain situation that they feel isn’t right. This could help you in noticing any changes in their behaviour and will make it easier to help them through their difficult experience. The child or young person should be empowered and be supported to take
Introduction to Duty of Care in health, social care or children’s and young people’s settings Understanding the meaning of Duty of Care 1.1 Define the term ‘Duty of Care’ Duty of Care is where health and social organisations have a duty to look after people meaning they must do everything they can do to keep the people in their care safe from harm. Not only do the care workers of a company have to prioritise the safety, welfare and interests of the people using its services but also the company itself. An employer also has a duty of care for staff members to make sure where employees work is in safe conditions and suitable for them to deliver the service. 1.2 Describe how the duty of care affects own role at work The Duty of care I have in my work role is to keep myself safe and my service user safe. To do this I should keep my training up to date, follow all policies and procedures set by employer in order to keep things safe.
It is essential that the term 'Highly Resistant' is defined at this stage as it will give the reader an understanding of its true meaning to professionals involved with working with this group. The term 'Highly Resistant' is defined by C4EO as: 'Families who do not engage or cooperate with services to protect children at risk of harm, including those who may appear outwardly compliant and families who do not demonstrate positive change despite intervention and support from child protection services'. This term offered is crucial when dealing with a family who may show signs of being a 'resistant' family as this can often lead to more severe and potential problems regarding the safety of the child(ren) as the social worker involved may feel that the lack of engagement and hostility shown towards them is effecting their practice. Example, they may fail to carry out follow up assessments which could leave the child at risk of serious harm. (C4EO, 2010).
Such as; a parent, teacher, coach, principle, school consular or any other adult. Better communication between parents and their child can also helps to protect against bullies. A parent should always know what is going on in there child’s life. I also believe that the best way to protect your child from bullies is to instill self-confidence in your child through discipline, praise and positive reinforcement. In addition, a parent should always know who there child’s friends are and be very aware of there child’s behavior.
Being a parent means different things to the parent and to the child. To the parent being a parent means responsibility because you have to be responsible for the child and different aspects of the child’s life. Also it means life long commitment because it will as long as you are the parent which is forever. Another thing it means to a parent is happiness because you have someone who loves you no matter what and you get to observe them growing up. To the child their parent means guidance because the parent hopefully will lead the child on the right path.
