The NSPCC have linked with gaming simulation expert Attensi to develop a tool, ‘Talk to Me’, for supporting adults working with children to build confidence in having conversations about difficult topics including abuse. The Troubled Families Programme blog explains more about the purpose of the tool.
The tool is guided by expert advice to ensure it is relevant to child protection and safeguarding principles. The free resource enables learners to:
- Access simulated scenarios and interact with fictional child characters
- Learn how to respond to the children and build their trust to help them talk about their experiences to successfully complete each scenario
- Build knowledge and confidence around how to speak to children about abuse
