Growing up neglected: Using the story of Harry Potter to explore the impacts of neglect and abuse in childhood.
"Perhaps it had something to do with living in a dark cupboard, but Harry had always been small and skinny for his age … [he] had a thin face, knobbly knees … and wore round glasses held together with a lot of Scotch tape because of all the times Dudley had punched him on the nose. "
In this masterclass you’ll explore the concepts of neglect and abuse and engage in critical discussion on how the neglect of older children may go unseen.
You’ll learn how the behaviour of older children must be understood in the context of trauma and find out about initiatives that aim to provide a multi-agency response to older children.
The session will be delivered by a leading member of academic staff and has been designed for anyone who has an interest in pursuing a career working with children, young people and families in a diverse range of settings.
