The Respect Young Peoples Programme (RYPP) is recognised by the Youth Justice Board Effective Practice Unit and is currently delivered across an increasing number of Local Authorities and Police Crime Commissioner areas in England.
Respect do not work directly with young people and families. We provide comprehensive training, implementation materials and on-going support to practitioners who have undertaken our training.
Covid-19 response- Online training
We are working hard to get all our young people’s training on-line. The one-day Early Response training will be available in October 2020.
Below is our current “in person” training offer. We can provide training following current government social distancing guidelines.
RYPP Implementation Training
The package includes 4 days training delivered by our team at a venue of your choice. The delivery manual for family, parent and young people’s sessions, as well as guidance in relation to implementation, referrals, case and risk management and video materials.
Early Response to CAPVA (Ask and Act)
This is a one-day training course for up to 25 frontline staff who work with families experiencing CAPVA where they may not meet the criteria for the RYPP.
This training course provides practitioners with an increased ability to recognise Child and Adolescent to Parent Violence and Abuse, to understand the dynamic involved and provide practical tools to enable practitioners to support the families they are working with.
Training for Police Officers responding to CAPVA
This session is designed to support police officers to explore their perception of CAPVA, understand the risks and look at a range of policing responses that have proved effective in responding to this increasing common form of domestic abuse.
This is ½ day training for around 30 officers per session.
The Early Response and Police training can be adapted to include local data, case studies or reference to local incidents if appropriate and provided in advance to our training team.
Outcome measurement and analysis
Respect recommends that Strength and Difficulties Questionnaires (SDQs) are undertaken pre and post intervention by the children/adolescents and their parents/carers who undertake the RYPP.
The SDQs give a multi-dimensional picture of the needs and issues faced by the young person and identify any change over the of the course of the intervention.
SDQs are well validated and used extensively, providing a reference to the general population, comparisons with other interventions and where benchmarking with other RYPP providers is required.
In addition, the Warwick Edinburgh Well-being Scale is helpful to assess changes for parents over the course of the RYPP. A significant proportion (around 30%) of parents who access the RYPP also experience difficulties, specifically reporting anxiety and depression.
These examples of outcome measures alongside risk profiles and service user feedback provide an effective basis to understand the impact of the service and enable informed decisions to be made regarding the need for future provision.
Respect can support by undertaking the analysis of the data and providing reports on outcomes.
