Safeguarding vulnerable people for Holistic therapists



The Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 arose from serious cases where children, disabled, elderly and adults were found to have been abused in various different ways. This legislation was aims to safeguard vulnerable people through various activities; DBS is the disclosure and barring service that vets all persons who are seeking to work within work areas that have vulnerable groups and prevents anyone who is on the DBS list from gaining employment in such settings. Where UK legislation changes and is amended this course will be updated to reflect this. In this course students learn:Legislation around Safeguarding vulnerable groupsTypes of abuseSigns and symptoms of abuseThe “alerter”; your role and responsibilitiesReporting and recording; when to make a disclosure and to whom.Includes: domestic violence and abuse, modern slavery and the homelessThe mental capacity Act and Deprivation of libertiesThe Disclosure and Barring system – to be addedDeborah is currently drafting a final element for this course and may take some time to get to you; this element will pay attention to the obligation of confidentiality and data protection. This involves a very personal experience in which work colleagues, at a place where Deborah once worked, (a private health care setting) forged false allegations against her. Deborah will utilise the acronym F.E.A.R as a method of providing how psychological abuse can be applied and lead to the decimation of a persons character, credibility and career – Deborah opens this to students so that students will become mindful of a malignant personality disorder that issues abuse in a pathological way. This element creates the foundation of a course that will be available around Cluster b personality disorders and the abuse they spew upon their victims and looks at holistic healing methods and practices the victim can apply to heal and recover.*****Deborah will pay profits from this course as a monthly donation to a charity that helps, supports and assists homeless women here in the UK; this is because women, both migrant and refugee women as well as UK nationals, are the most vulnerable in society.*****
