The information contained in this Toolbox is to be used only as a guide to practice, and to inform and link practitioners to reliable sources of information.

Any practice with young people should always be done within the policies and procedures of the practitioner’s own organisation, and with regular clinical supervision.

Where children are involved, compliance with the State child protection requirements is essential, and any information in this Toolbox which appears to contradict any legislative requirement must be disregarded.

If you are ever in doubt about what action to take with a young person, especially in regards to their children, take time to discuss it with your supervisor, your experienced colleagues, and other reliable sources of advice in your area.
