‘Disguised compliance’ is when parents or carers appear to co-operate with professionals to deliberately allay safeguarding concerns and prevent further engagement or intervention. This insightful course will provide early years practitioners with the tools and the confidence to spot the potential signs of disguised compliance and be aware of the correct channels for reporting.

CPD Certified

Parents and carers displaying disguised compliance may attempt to manipulate professionals and situations to purposely avoid engagement or intervention from the setting. Some individuals, for instance, may say the right things or appear to engage just enough to satisfy practitioners.

The subtleties of disguised compliance, however, can easily be overlooked. It's crucial, therefore, to shed light on this key topic – enhancing practitioners’ ability to recognise and address such deceptive behaviours effectively. 

Presented by experienced safeguarding consultant Kim Martin, this course will increase your knowledge of potential indicators when working with families – helping you understand how to identify if a child may be at risk, and how to respond appropriately if you think this is the case.
