Working with families where there are child protection concerns is often difficult - but it is made especially challenging where either parents do not recognise that there is a problem, or deny that there is any cause for concern. This webinar considered some of the reasons for this, the impact on workers and explored some strategies for working with families where they are resistant to support.
