Code: BH/21/0917 Anti racism and white privilege (families, children and learning staff only) (EVENT FULL)

Brighton & Hove City Council has made a commitment to becoming an anti-racist council.

As a predominantly white council we must recognise what we don’t know, what we don’t experience and see. We need to openly discuss the language we use and understand what different words mean to different people.

To support this, we want to educate staff on white privilege, language and structural racism, As a starting point, we are offering this training for staff.

This anti-racism session has been designed to:

  • support staff to strengthen their understanding of race equality and develop the knowledge and skills to identify and address racism in their workplace
  • Introduce participants to the main concepts of race equality, such as privilege and structural racism within a safe, open and reflective space


The course will be delivered by Brenda Lewis, from training company Ceruleanblu. 

Brenda is a qualified and experienced organisational and learning development specialist, working with particular focus on leadership, equality and inclusion, organisational development, management skills, and personal development.

Code: BH/21/0683 Emotion Coaching

Emotion Coaching has been found to help children and young people better understand their emotions, as well as regulate, improve and take ownership of their behaviour. Emotion Coached children and young people:

·         Achieve more academically in school
·         Are more popular
·         Have fewer behavioural problems
·         Have fewer infectious illnesses
·         Are more emotionally stable
·         Are more resilient                                            

                                       (Gottman 1997)

Emotion Coaching can also help practitioners to be more sensitive to the needs of children and young people, create more consistent responses to behaviour, feel more ‘in control’ during incidents, and promote positive relationships between adults and children.

Delegates will be encouraged between Day 1 and 2 to reflect on their learning and experiences. This will involve keeping a reflective diary to consider how you have used Emotion Coaching ‘in the moment’, what went well and what you have learnt through ‘getting it wrong’, which is an important part of the learning process and EC journey.

Between days 1 and 2, you will also need to watch the half hour video here

At the end of the 2 day course, you will consider how you can further embed Emotion Coaching into your work and personal lives and consider how to “adopt” and “adapt” into your professional practice. “you need to practise to improve practice” (Gilbert, 2018)

Please note, this is now a 2 day course. No need to redo if already done the 1 day course.

Code: BH/21/0597 Meeting the Needs of BAME Children (EVENT FULL)

The session will cover issues of race, identity, marginalization and discrimination. We will consider associated terminology, discuss strategies to challenge racism and explore the implications of potentially damaging attitudes, language and behaviours. 

We will watch a film which offers a young person's perspective and use this to consider how we can support BAME young people in developing a positive sense of identity. Case studies (which you will have a chance to look at before the session) will be used to bring together our deliberations. They will help in focussing our strategies of how we can work collectively towards better meeting the needs of BAME children.
