Successful completion of this course leads to Thrive Adolescence Licensed Practitioner status.
This in-depth course will equip you with the essential skills needed to support the social and emotional development of the young people in your setting; 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.
This course is ideal for anyone working closely with adolescents in a teaching, healthcare or social care role. It is particularly beneficial to professionals with pastoral responsibilities, including safeguarding, special educational needs, SEMH education or a tutor role.
Please note: Prices are for courses starting on or after 1 September 2023. Price also includes Thrive membership, professional licensing on successful completion of the course, plus two CPD webinars in your first year.
