Support for Teachers
I offer sessions for whole or small groups of teachers as well as teacher training packages. This service can help support teaching staff by reflecting on the difficult areas of their role and connect with how attachment and neuroscience will be impacting the child’s behaviour. I can also facilitate how this impacts the school as a system, particularly ways in which professionals can be impacted by the trauma of the children they work with and how to manage this.
Thinking this through and gaining more knowledge on secondary trauma can help staff groups to feel more confident, become better equipped to take on their daily challenges and feel more optimistic about their role and the team. This in turn will have a positive impact on the pupils and the ethos of the school. Please note that I do not have to be working with pupils in the school already to undertake training sessions.
Support and Training
In addition to direct work with children and young people I offer parenting support and training on the behaviour of children and adolescents. This is designed for parents, carers, teachers and other professionals. It can be standalone or alongside other therapy/support.
Training is offered on attachment and the emotional needs of children and young people. It is designed to:
Increase understanding and management of child and adolescent behaviour
Foster a greater knowledge of how the emotional needs of young people affects their ability to focus, achieve, form relationships and possess confidence and enthusiasm for life
This may include information on how the following has an impact on learning and wellbeing:
ACE's: Adverse Childhood Experiences
Emotional states: anger, fear, sadness and joy
Attachment and bonding
The emotional needs of children and adolescents
Early brain development, the neuro-biology of attachment
Trauma, neglect and loss
Parental mental health
The importance of boundaries
Training can be tailor-made to answer particular questions or to meet your requirements.
