Course overview

Adolescence is a time of self-exploration, creative expression and transformation. Young people experience a burst in brain development, a changing body and challenging transitions as they progress on their journey to adulthood. This provides an amazing window of opportunity to help them become more emotionally resilient and open to learning.

Informed by the latest advances in neuroscience, as well as attachment theory and child development, the Thrive Approach enables you to seize the opportunities of adolescence and create a safe and emotionally healthy environment for the young people in your setting.

This Thrive Licensed Practitioner virtual training course, tailored for those working alongside adolescents, will equip you with the essential skills needed to support the social and emotional development of all young people; helping them to develop healthy stress regulation systems, strengthen their emotional resilience and ultimately protect them from potential mental health difficulties.

The course will show you how the brain and body change during adolescence and the impact this can have on their behaviour. Our experienced trainers will explore with you how to work alongside young people, how to scaffold their development and respond appropriately to their emotions, and importantly how you can reassure them that the changes they are going through are normal.

You will also explore how Thrive-Online, our profiling and action-planning tool, can be used to identify the social and emotional needs of the young people you work with. You will be shown how to identify the relevant strategies and action plans that will support their development.

Suitable for

This course, leading to Thrive Licensed Practitioner status, is ideal for anyone working closely with adolescents in a teaching, health care or social care role. It is particularly beneficial to professionals with pastoral responsibilities, including safeguarding, special educational needs, SEMH education or a tutor role.
