As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic we are noticing a a multi layered response in our children and young people. Many of our children and young people are struggling to cope with the ever shifting environment and rules, the loss of routines, access to friends and family and the threat to themselves and loved one’s has taken its toll on everyone.
The effect of trauma and adverse childhood experiences have on a young person’s ability to cope and regulate is often misunderstood by both services and practitioners who work with children and young people daily, in a pressurized learning environment there are so many challenges, and our wonderful carers and teachers do an incredible job, the aim of this course is to utilize the power in them, to support healing and growth in our children and young people.
This is why Helping Hands Training Specialists are committed to building a foundation for these young people to further enhance their current development and find informed and appropriate support to work through their trauma and move past the turbulence of the last couple of years. We have partnered with Modern Therapies UK to help deliver a course to provide schools and childcare services with essential skills, understanding and knowledge to be able to tackle this ongoing problem and support people who may be experiencing trauma.
Modern Therapies UK are expert psychotherapists that specialize in the effects of trauma and healing through connection, with an approach focusing on the neurobiology of relational care and its innate reparative qualities. We are working with Modern Therapies UK to bring their expert psychotherapy and relational approach to schools and childcare settings across the country to help minimize the effects of trauma brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trauma-Informed Practice allows schools and childcare services around the country to become more competent when dealing with ongoing trauma that a child or young person may be experiencing, and aiding the prevention of re-traumatisation in a social setting. This will allow schools to provide a welcome, inclusive, and caring environment in which children and young people feel comfortable and are provided with a safe space to cope with any trauma they may have experienced.
This course will provide professionals with the tools needed to support a child or young person dealing with any form of trauma and build lasting resilience within young people, to support and improve behaviour. Over 2000 children and young people are suspended from school daily, with this having a detrimental effect on their learning. If schools can deploy trauma informed practices, we can greatly reduce the number of children excluded or suspended from school as a result of behaviours relating to experienced trauma. This course will help you to minimize the impact of the pandemic and provide a stable and secure learning environment for all your students, by developing and deepening your knowledge of what trauma is, how it shows up and how you can engage with it effectively.
Here at Helping Hands Training Specialists and Modern Therapies UK, we are committed to supporting organisations and individuals to create environments that offer safety, acceptance and growth, while stimulating the creativity, curiosity and passion that also lives in our children and young people.
