CPSL Training and Events
CPSL training and learning opportunities strengthen the awareness, knowledge, skills and capacity of Catholic Church entities to safeguard children and vulnerable adults.
*COVID-19 and CPSL training and events*
With the emergence of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), CPSL want to assure you that we are committed to continuing to provide services to our stakeholders. The safety and wellbeing of both our staff and our stakeholders is our highest priority and we are monitoring the evolving outbreak situation closely.
CPSL is bringing scheduled safeguarding training sessions online. This includes our NCSS Introductory Session for Leaders and Applying the NCSS Workshops.
We are still offering 'bespoke' training sessions for a range of organisations - if you would like to discuss how CPSL can assist your organisation or ministry, please give us a call.
If anyone has any concerns or questions about CPSL training and events, please feel free to contact our team on 1300 603 411 or by email at email@example.com
Catholic Professional Standards Ltd is committed to fostering a culture of safety and care for children and vulnerable adults within the Catholic Church of Australia.
The aim of the CPSL Learning & Development Strategy is to strengthen awareness, knowledge, capability and capacity of Church entities to safeguard children and vulnerable adults. The strategy is designed to provide new information, support and not replicate work already being undertaken by Church entities in areas of safeguarding.
The strategy was developed using feedback obtained from Church leaders and personnel, child sexual abuse, survivors and advocates, safeguarding experts and statutory authorities. It is articulated to support Catholic entities to improve their safeguarding approach in accordance with the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards and the first three years of auditing and reporting under the CPSL Audit Framework.
Upcoming safeguarding webinars
Webinar series: Responding to Problematic Sexual Behaviours in Children
National Catholic Safeguarding Standards training
This session takes place over three modules, over two days (August 12 & 13). This full-day session is designed for Church Authorities (bishops, leaders of religious institutes, trustees of ministerial PJPs), accompanied by members of their leadership teams.
This webinar is the first in CPSL’s new series: Responding to Problematic Sexual Behaviours in Children. This webinar is intended for all members of faith communities who care for or work with pre-pubescent children and their families. This webinar will help participants consider and identify the difference between age-expected and problematic sexual behaviour, explore the possible causes of problematic sexual behaviours in children of this age group, identify initial responses to such behaviours and provide guidance on when to seek further advice, assessment or intervention.
This webinar is the second in CPSL’s new series: Responding to Problematic Sexual Behaviours in Children. This webinar will be of interest to caregivers of children with problematic sexual behaviour, teachers, youth and community workers, therapists and faith leaders and support personnel. This webinar on Understanding and Managing Problematic Sexual Behaviour in Children aims to help participants consider why children display such behaviour, consider how adults could respond in a helpful way and to identify some basic ideas for responding and managing such behaviour.
This webinar is the third in CPSL’s new webinar series: Responding to Problematic Sexual Behaviours in Children. This webinar is aimed at counsellors, therapists or specialist workers who undertake direct work with children (child protection workers or safeguarding personnel – especially those who work in schools). This webinar provides an overview of key issues in assessment and intervention of problematic sexual behaviours in children.
This session takes place over three modules, over two days (October 13 & 14). This full-day session is designed for Church Authorities (bishops, leaders of religious institutes, trustees of ministerial PJPs), accompanied by members of their leadership teams.
