You will be introduced to the principles which underpin your practice – the six Bs – Be safe, Belong, Bond, Build, Believe, Be all you can be. The training draws on the evidence of what works best for traumatised children and contains elements of psychoanalysis, transactional analysis, person centred theory (PACE) and humanistic psychology BUT the emphasis is on how the understanding of these theories impacts and improves direct, daily work with children and that this can be evidenced. You will be taught how to use Reflective Journals to embed and record your therapeutic practice. At the end of the course, you can be sure that you are doing the best therapeutic work for your children and can prove this to families, social workers, Ofsted and all of your stakeholders.
This 2-day course is best delivered as whole-staff training to reflect a sound and consistent approach for your young people. The cost of the two-day programme is £2,195+vat, inclusive of expenses, to be delivered at your own venue. For homes looking to further develop their practice the course leads into our more in-depth 10-day trauma informed programme.
