Course overview

This refresher course will re-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 looks at how the brain and body change during adolescence and the impact this can have on their behaviour. You will explore 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 review 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, showing how to identify the relevant strategies and action plans that will support their development.

Suitable for

This refresher training is ideal for any Thrive Licensed Practitioners working with secondary school aged children (11 to 18 years) who have let their license lapse.

A requisite of this training is that you will need to be an authorised user of Thrive-Online, our profiling, measuring and monitoring tool, with an active subscription.
