7 Minute Briefings

Our 7 Minute briefings provide information on key topics useful for managers to use to support reflective discussion with practitioners.

The NSPCC regularly produce thematic briefings to highlight learning from case reviews that are conducted when a child dies or is seriously injured and abuse or neglect are suspected. You can view these briefings here!

Research suggests that seven minutes is an ideal time span to concentrate and learn. Why not discuss one in your next team meeting?

Please note - adult focused 7 minute briefings can be found here.
