About this Event
Webinar by – Prof Michael Preston-Shoot – University of Bedfordshire
Michael Preston-Shoot is Emeritus Professor of Social Work at the University of Bedfordshire. In this webinar he will draw on his ongoing research into self-neglect and hoarding, and more recent research on adult safeguarding and multiple exclusion homelessness. Combining presentation and group discussion, he will:
• Provide a brief overview of the research findings on the definitions and causes of self-neglect and/or multiple exclusion homelessness, and on the effectiveness of intervention strategies;
• Engage practitioners and managers in debate about the challenges of self-neglect and multiple exclusion homelessness encountered in practice, the approaches taken and the outcomes achieved;
• Present the findings of safeguarding adult reviews;
• Discuss approaches to workforce and workplace development that support interagency work to safeguard adults at risk and help practitioners and managers navigate the risks and challenges of working with adults who self-neglect and/or who experience multiple exclusion homelessness.
Michael will provide a forum for considering how research findings might impact on approaches to assessment, decision-making and intervention.
