Competence, capacity or parental responsibility? A guide to all three for those working with young people

10/8/2024 15:30 - 16:30

This session aims to assist those working with dilemmas of practice with young people when voices need to be heard, parents have a view and the law might sound confusing. It will re-visit basic principles alongside helpful case law and is designed to provide explanations and give confidence to practitioners when the three concepts appear to collide.

Attend this session to:

• Be clearer on the three concepts of competence, capacity and parental responsibility
• Explore relevant definitions and case law
• Understand how to apply the concepts within your day-to-day practice and explain them to others
