Evidence from child abuse survivors shows that for the vast majority of children, their disclosure journey was negative. There were numerous missed opportunities for intervention and support identified along these journeys. Negative journeys were characterised by poor responses from those to whom they had disclosed, lack of support, particularly emotional support, and a lack of protective action taken. Recognising a disclosure, and how you respond is vitally important to ensure children and young people feel believed and can access the support they need.

Take this course to acquire and build the knowledge and skills required to help a child.
