The online seminars I ran earlier this month on Childhood Adversity, Trauma and Resilience were oversubscribed and as a result I had a lot of requests to repeat these events.

I have specifically been asked to put on similar introductory seminars with a focus on schools.

So, I am hosting two virtual seminars on the subject of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE), Trauma and Resilience for Schools Post Pandemic.

The  seminars are taking place on Wednesday 2nd September 2020 at 12:30pm – 2:30pm BST and Friday 4th September at 10.00am – 12.00pm BST.

The seminars will cover:

  • Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and other potentially traumatising life events.
  • How and why does adversity in childhood often have such long-lasting impacts?
  • Attachment and attunement in child development – why these processes are so crucial to health and coping.
  • Co-regulation and self-regulation – why learning about and managing the stress response is an essential life skill.
  • Dan Siegel’s hand/brain model.
  • ‘Resilience is the antidote to adversity’ – implications for practice.
  • What exactly is trauma-informed practice and where did it start?
  • What does being a ‘trauma-sensitive school’ mean?
  • The psychological and social consequences of the coronavirus pandemic and our collective response.
  • Q&A.

Anyone who is a part of the school workforce community can attend, including:

  • Leadership and management
  • Teachers
  • Teaching Assistants
  • Welfare Staff
  • DSLs
  • Pastoral Staff
  • School Nurses
  • Governors

For further information and to book your ticket please follow the links to the Eventbrite booking pages. Tickets are at £25 + vat per delegate.

I hope to see you there.

By understanding the impact of trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), we are able to consider how the traumatic life events of the people we are supporting might be influencing their current behaviour or difficulties and how we can respond in a trauma-sensitive way.
