It is essential that all social workers understand their role within the Mental Capacity Act in relation to working with young people and adults. This masterclass will give the opportunity for social workers to understand their role and responsibilities within the Mental Capacity Act and how that links with the Court of Protection and wider human rights. There will be practice examples and opportunity for Q and A. This masterclass intents to compliment core Mental Capacity Training within your organisation.
The masterclass will;
- give an overview of the Mental Capacity Act and the Court of Protection for Social Workers in both Children and Families and Adult Social Care roles.
- explain the role of the Social Worker in conducting and documenting mental capacity assessments.
- discuss the importance of restrictions, less restrictive options, necessary and proportionate.
- consider case law and case studies from practice.
The masterclass will be on MS Teams. If you would like to attend, please register your interest via Eventbrite using the following link and a Teams invitation will be sent to you by return:
