Adolescent safeguarding is an area of practice that has undergone change in recent years, as we now understand how young people are more likely than younger children to experience risk and harm from outside the family – known as ‘extra-familial’ harm.

This video from Dez Holmes, Director at Research in Practice, looks at supporting young people to transition to adulthood and safeguarding them from harm.

  • Young people have said they need both protection and to be prepared for adulthood; how can you implement this within your own practice when working with young people?
  • How can we think critically about using Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)?
  • How do you implement 'structured professional judgement' in your own practice?
  • How can poverty and inequality impact on parents/carers engagement with you in your practice?
