This virtual masterclass, facilitated by Fay Berry and Stephen Pizzey, explores decision making in complex child protection and safeguarding cases using the Safeguarding Children Assessment and Analysis Framework (SAAF).

  • The Safeguarding Children Assessment and Analysis Framework (Pizzey, Bentovim, Cox, Bingley Miller and Tapp, 2016) was designed to help professionals make an analysis of the level of harm suffered or likely to be suffered by the child; the risks of re-abuse or likelihood of future harm; and the prospects for successful intervention in cases that social workers find complex. 
  • The SAAF provides a systematic, robust, evidence-based and time-efficient model and a range of methods for assessing, analysing and making decisions in the safeguarding context. 
  • The Safeguarding Children Assessment and Analysis Framework focuses on analysis and decision-making and enables practitioners to evidence the rationale underpinning their recommendations and decisions to their managers and the courts.
  • Experienced professionals with responsibility for making or contributing to assessments of children and families where there are ongoing safeguarding concerns, including staff in children’s social care, CAMHS, health, education, police, probation, expert witnesses, children’s guardians and independent social workers should attend this masterclass.
