Event description

Description

Future Risk of Emotional Harm

How can this justify the removal of children from their parents' care?

#CPConf2018 presents contributions from various speakers, followed by a panel discussion and contributions from the audience. We will record the event and post it online.

The aim of the event is to

  • understand the historic basis and justification for the use of 'risk of future emtional harm' as a basis to remove children
  • explain and discuss the parameters of 'emtional harm' - how do the courts define it?
  • discuss people's concerns about this as a rationale for removing children
  • consider how these concerns can be addressed

Anyone with an interest in the child protection system is welcome. We hope that parents, social workers, lawyers and other professionals will find it useful.

Confirmed speakers are

  • Sarah Phillimore - considering the original justifications for reliance on 'risk of future emotional harm'
  • 'Annie' - considering the parent's perspective
  • Louise Tickle - journalist and 'intelligent outsider'

Additional speakers to be announced.

The TP works towards improving the quality, range and accessibility of information available to the public both in the press and elsewhere. The charity does not take on individual cases or provide legal services.
