Learn to work effectively with Adolescent young people as an every child approach, especially vulnerable young people with disruptive and troubling behaviour, to help build their resilience, enhance emotional wellbeing that underpins good mental health and thereby improve academic attainment.

You will learn how to develop resilience and form secure relationships that nurture and support the young person for engaging with life and learning. Using Thrive-Online to screen whole groups of teenagers will help you to identify their underlying emotional and social learning needs. The course equips academy/school staff, within their daily role (SLT to MTA), to enhance and maintain learning environments in which young people feel safe, supported, inspired and able to learn and succeed. As well as tools to use when things go wrong, you will learn how to use young people's behaviour as a clue to underlying developmental interruptions. As a result you will become more confident in your interactions with adolescents and able to reduce stress levels within relationships between staff and young people.

Course Content:

  • Underpinning theory – understanding the adolescent brain through the latest neuroscience, including attachment theory and the impact of trauma

  • The Six Developmental Strands of emotional and social development

  • Positive use of the arts and creativity

  • Thrive-Online and mentoring throughout the course

  • The Polyvagal Theory

  • Vital Relational Functions and PLACE - cornerstones of the Thrive Approach
