Understanding the Freeze Response
This seminar will give you the opportunity to update your knowledge of the neuroscience that underpins the Thrive Approach. You will gain new insights into the nature of the stress response and how the brain and body respond to trauma.

You will learn about innovative new approaches to healing trauma, as well as what you, as a practitioner, can do to further support a trauma-sensitive approach to working with children and young people.

This workshop will revise the Thrive developmental strands and help you to identify creative activities to use with children at these different stages. You will also work in groups to develop your own activities to take back to your setting. You will come away with enhanced knowledge, be ready to implement new strategies and activities, and gain experience of developing and sharing new creative activities targeted at particular developmental strands.

Engaging Families (will not be available in Coventry)
This seminar will explore how you can work with parents and families to develop a shared understanding of Thrive and form an approach to their children’s development that is informed by recent insights from neuroscience and attachment theory.

It will illustrate how to improve home–school relationships by engaging from a position of compassion, as well as how to empower parents with an understanding of how the brain works.

Places on each Thrive conference seminar are allocated on a first come first served basis, so remember to book well ahead to attend your desired session. The seminars are designed to refresh your knowledge and understanding of Thrive and give you an insight into our most recent and exciting training topics.
