The School of Health Professions are pleased to invite you to their lecture by Professor Brian Littlechild from the University of Hertfordshire.

The presentation examines the consequences of violence from clients/patients  against staff in social work and healthcare professions, and in particular, from mental health clients/patients and parents in child protection work. It will examine the nature and effects of such behaviour on workers, on clients/patients themselves, and others in their formal and informal networks, and how as individuals and agencies we can best to respond to workers and to clients/patients after such incidents. 

Professor Brian Littlechild, PhD, is the lead for Research and CPD in the Department of Nursing and Social Work at the University of Hertfordshire. A qualified and registered social worker, he worked with children and their families, young offenders, and people with mental health problems as a practitioner and manager before working in universities. He has carried out 18 research projects and published widely on mental health issues for young and adult offenders, on mental health and risk assessment issues, and on violence from parents in child protection work.

This lecture is part of the School of Health Professions Lecture Series, co-hosted by the Institute of Health and Community. Everyone is welcome to attend, just turn up on the day!
