Learn to work effectively with all children and especially vulnerable children with disruptive and troubling behaviour to help re-engage them with life and learning.

You will learn why troubled and vulnerable children behave the way they do. Using Thrive-Online you will be able to screen whole classes and assess individual children to identify their underlying emotional needs and you will be able to select practical activities to help them. By the end of the course you will feel more confident to deal with disruptive and troubling behaviour and you will find stress levels reduce as relationships between staff and children improve.

Course Content:

  • We will be looking at the underpinning theory of brain development and neuroscience

  • The Six Developmental Strands of emotional and social development

  • VRFs (Vital Relational Functions)

  • Attachment Theory

  • The role of the arts, play and creativity in supporting social and emotional development

  • How fear, anger, loss, change, separation, bereavement and joy can interrupt learning

  • Thrive-Online and mentoring throughout the course.

Duration: 10 days spread over two terms.
