This seminar is designed for those in schools who are working with children who have experienced trauma. This includes witnessing or experiencing domestic violence or neglect. Some of the children you are working with may still be experiencing such situations. Others will have been removed, through fostering, adoption or a change to their family, but will still experience the effects.
The seminar will help you to better understand how these children think and react to situations, and you will become more sensitive to them and their needs.
The course looks at:
The back story for these children
The brain matches patterns and its implications - associations and triggers
Areas of the curriculum that they may find difficult
Acting out and acting in
I can run this seminar as a brief introduction to the issues, lasting approximately 30 minutes, which would be suitable for a staff meeting. Alternatively I can go deeper into the subject and look into different issues. This could be as part of an inset day, or similar staff training. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
Catch the wind in your sails!
