Learning Lessons Workshop
Three learning lessons workshops are scheduled annually and they provide the opportunity to learn from the experience of local or national reviews or on specific topics or themes.
The most recent workshop - Involving Fathers Across the Partnership took place online on 23rd February 2021
The workshop was facilitated by Professor Brigid Featherstone, Professor of Social Work and Associate Director, Centre for Applied Childhood, Youth and Family Research, University of Huddersfield and Dr Marion Russell, Head of Service, Practice Development and Safeguarding Standards Service, Cornwall Council.
In recent years a growing body of research has evidenced the importance of fathers in the development of their children. The value of engaging positively with fathers is increasingly clear from research as are the risks of not effectively understanding the roles they can have with their children.
Learning from Rapid Reviews in Cornwall, and the research we have been involved in with the National Panel continues to identify this as an important aspect of our involvement with families across the partnership
This workshop was an opportunity for practitioners working with children and their families in Cornwall to explore the learning from research in the context of local experience and to identify effective ways of working with fathers in all organisation across the partnership.
