Resources and helpful links

Each edition of this newsletter we’ll share some useful links and resources for practice development. These will also be added to the resources section of the Online ABL pages in due course.

If you come across a good resource or link please let Meggan know and we can add it to future newsletters.

  • Also, well done to Kay for her successful completion of her SVQ3 qualification and for all her hard work towards this.

Some useful links and resources:

  • Specific website on support for recognising the signs and supporting young people you think maybe vulnerable to, or are being online grooming & CSE – https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/
  • To understand the signs and development of online grooming, recently tragic documentary of young man who was murdered at hands of his groomer. Please not this has harrowing content and may not be an easy watch. This documentary is for staff knowledge and not to be watched with young people working with (if you want to further chat about this just give Meggan a call). http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p03cgtx5/murder-games-the-life-and-death-of-breck-bednar

 

  • Documentary on the real life story of man searching to find a stranger who stopped him from killing himself – Again not an easy watch, but strong themes on ‘what helps’ when people are feeling suicidal/ severve low mood. If watching with young people, should only be over 16 yrs and need discussion with full team and team manager sign off prior to doing this http://www.channel4.com/programmes/the-stranger-on-the-bridge/on-demand
