With the current focus on child criminal and child sexual exploitation, the need to understand notions of vulnerability and childhood has never been timelier. This interactive virtual webinar will explore the concept of adultification and its application to practice.
Adultification is a form of racial prejudice in which children of minority groups are treated as being more mature than they actually are by a reasonable social standard of development. Negative behaviour is responded to more harshly than would be the same behaviour in their white, same-aged peers.
Jahnine Davis is currently completing a PhD at Kingston University London, on Black British Caribbean Adolescents and Extra-Familial Harm. In this seminar, she will talk about her research in terms of how preconceptions of Black children can influence safeguarding responses. In addition, Jahnine will explore the concept of adultification bias and how professionals can guard against it by:
• Understanding the concepts of adultification and how it translates to practice
• Exploring notions of vulnerability and childhood, and how these are applied to some children more than others
• Review findings from serious case reviews
• Exploring language and the framing of certain children.
