In the field of child protection, specifically in tackling child sexual abuse material (CSAM), it comes as no surprise that the gravity of the task at hand can severely impact mental health.

In our last Expert Insights webinar of the season, Catherine Knibbs will join us to share her knowledge and expertise as a psychotherapist with content analysts who face the daunting task of reviewing harmful or even traumatic material. She will shed light on the value of investing in self-care and harm prevention, in a field where it is not only optional but a necessity. Gain insight into how to recognise symptoms of trauma, burnout, and distress in yourself and your colleagues.

Management plays a crucial role in prioritising self-care and harm prevention within the organisation. Catherine will delve into preventive measures organisations can implement to help keep their content analysts healthy and effective in their roles. Catherine utilises an interactive approach to engage with the audience and connect both intellectually and emotionally.

A resource list will be provided to attendees after the webinar.
