Now Available

Part 7 of a series of free online CPD sessions by the Sigma Teaching School Alliance on understanding and supporting children and young people who have experienced trauma.

Introduction

This is the seventh session of a free online staff CPD course re understanding and supporting children and young people who have experienced trauma. The previous sessions can be found on the tabs on the left side on our Online Training web page. Subsequent sessions will be added to the Sigma Teaching School website every Tuesday. 

Introduction

Unfortunately, it is likely that at this time of increased stress that, despite our best efforts, there will be an increase in the number of ruptures in relationships. As a result, this session of the course will focus on What about when it goes wrong?

In order to best support children and young people who have experienced trauma we need to have a plan as to both what we are going to do when things go wrong and how we are going to do this.

As with the other sessions in this course the aims are:

  1. To provide an overview of the key messages from research regarding what works for children and young people who have experienced trauma.

  2. Provide an opportunity to reflect on your own practice with regard to these key messages (reassurance and ideally identifying actions to further develop your practice).

  3. Signposting to other information.

And once again, as with other sessions, the approaches and interventions will be evidence-based; mostly from the fields of psychology and neuroscience. Some of the evidence-based approaches and interventions informed by the research are deceptively simple. They are, however, also enormously powerful in their impact.

What we’ll cover in this session:

  • The 4Rs

  • Regulate

  • Relate

  • Reason

  • Repair
