Let your children know you’re listening: resources

NSPCC Learning has released a new animation to help adults ensure children and young people always feel they are listened to when they disclose abuse. Techniques outlined include: giving the children and young people your full attention and keeping body language open and encouraging; slowing down – let them go at their own pace; and showing you understand, by reflecting back what they have said to check your understanding. Posters to help professionals remember these skills and embed them in their practice are available to download.
