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
Due to the current restrictions due to Covid-19, all our training is delivered on line. Therefore participants will need to have access to the Zoom platform.
RYPP Implementation Training
The package includes guidance in relation to implementation of the programme; 4 days training for up to 16 people; delivery manual for each participant; handouts and access to the resources needed to deliver the programme.
Early Response to CAPVA (Ask and Act)
The Early Response training is a blended learning course for a cohort of up to 25 people. Participants will be given access to our online learning platform to undertake a self - directed learning course prior to been offered a place on a half day live online, skills practice session. Participation equates to the one day ‘in person’ course delivered pre Covid-19 restrictions .
The course is for frontline staff who work with families who are experiencing CAPVA
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 live online via the Zoom platform 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.
