Code: BH/22/0242 Trauma Informed Approaches for Supervision and Management

Therefore, the relationships practitioners build to promote safety is emotional work that inevitably impacts upon them.

Code: BH/22/0823 Emotion Coaching (EVENT FULL)

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/21/1403 Working Together to Support Children with Transitions to Permanence (2 days)

Children transitioning to permanence (be it family and friends placements, long term fostering, special guardianship, adoption and reunification) are often contending with moves from difficult pasts to unknown futures and are likely to experience a range of intense and conflicting emotions.

This course will provide foster carers, supervising social workers and children’s social workers with an overview of the legal and departmental processes in achieving permanency AND will focus on  techniques, strategies and resources to support children. The course is specifically aimed at foster carers, social workers and supervising social workers who are involved in supporting children through this process. The longer term implications for children and young people, as well as the impact on their carers will also be explored.

The training is focused on the transitions that babies/children/young people experience coming into care as well as ‘moving on’ and encourages participants to be mindful of ‘transition’ from the outset of a placement to best inform the subsequent moves.  It is also developmental and encompasses the groups prior experiences and an opportunity to practice some direct work.

It can be helpful for networks (team around the child) to attend together to inform planning.
