East Midlands SEND Training Hub - Attachment Aware Schools training

** This full day face-to-face training event will be delivered by KCA in Partnership with the East Midlands SEND Training Hub, and is open to All teaching staff. **

Cost: £55.00 per person. Includes hot lunch.

Course: 'The Importance of Relationships in Meeting the Needs of all Children.'

This interactive and reflective full day event will give participants the opportunity to develop their understanding of attachment-aware and trauma-informed practice, and place this in the context of THEIR practice.

Content: The session will cover the neuroscience of attachment, the importance of connected relationships for building and maintaining healthy brains, and the impact of trauma and what is needed for recovery. The impact of stress on brain function will be described and discussed, and how toxic levels of stress can injure our brains (trauma), changing the way we think, feel and behave until we have recovered from the injuries. Such injuries are not an inevitable result of overwhelming stress; supportive, co-regulating adults can often enable those affected by toxic stress to recover quickly without injury. Even when injury does occur, people can recover spontaneously if they have access to a social network of people who can co-regulate, guide and support through the recovery process.

Reflective discussions will explore behaviour as the communication of a need, and how adult responses at each phase of recovery can have an impact on a child or young person recovering from trauma. People need to stabilise through feeling supported and understood, and develop self-regulation. They need to integrate the experiences of their lives, feel emotionally literate and become able to process information accurately. They need to become socially adaptive with improved self-esteem and feel a sense of joy in living.

This full day session aims to lay the foundations of the 'attachment, trauma and resilience' knowledge base so that participants can then engage with the free e-learning (and range of resources provided) following the session to support and encourage a deepening of the knowledge base and further reflection.
