We’ll build up a picture of the main risk factors are and look at how to recognise and respond to situations where abuse linked to beliefs in ‘witchcraft’ or ‘spirit possession’ has occurred, or may occur. You’ll assess how this impacts you as a professional or volunteer, whether that’s in a faith organisation, community group or social care setting.

Very helpful, especially to someone who had no knowledge about this area of safeguarding.
