Code: BH/23/0033 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/22/0932 Children's CPD Module - Professional Learning Review / Professional Learning Review: Extended

A 15 or 30 credit Masters level module for experienced practitioners or managers wanting to bring prior learning and experience into a CPD award pathway. Practitioners must have at least 30 credits gained from stand-alone CPD modules. 

The module comprises an individually tailored delivery of tutorials and, dependent on participant numbers, group tutorial sessions. These will assist the candidate to review previous learning against current learning outcomes, plan work and critically reflect on past and current practice in relation to contemporary reading and research relevant to role and award pathway.

This module particularly suits experienced practitioners needing 15 or 30 credits to complete a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma award, though it can be undertaken as a stand-alone module providing an opportunity for you to bring previous study (for example the Practice Teacher’s Award) up to date
and refresh your skills and knowledge.

NOTE: This module is primarily self study. Teaching will focus on the use of relevant knowledge and research for role (mapped against PCF) and the development of professional leadership in the role.

 Dates for the tutorials are TBC but will start spring 2023.

Code: BH/22/0937 Children's CPD Module - Work-based Research

To apply for this module please 'request a place' and download the FCL Social Work CPD Funding Application Pack from Attached Documents, complete this and return to lindsey.cockram@brighton-hove.gov.uk by the 11th July 2022

This 45 credit module is aimed at practitioners and managers from a range of agency and community services who are keen to design and undertake a work-role related research project.

Applicants are expected to have previous research training, for example through the University of Sussex 15 credit Practitioner Research module which runs in the autumn term.

You will learn how to conduct ethical, well-formulated research within a local service. Teaching is undertaken through a combination of supervision and targeted research method seminars aimed at building research skills.

Peer supervision groups enable the sharing of experience and the development of knowledge in a like-minded group setting. Individual supervision provides the support and knowledge base you need to develop your own research strategy and practice, to collect and analyse your data, and to present it in a way that provides recommendations to the agency where appropriate.

You will create a critical literature review as part of your report, guided by your supervisor, which will help to build your contextual knowledge and skills.

The module is assessed by a research report and a reflective research journal - both cultivating and demonstrating your researcher identity alongside your normal role.

On completion of the module you should feel ready to continue conducting research in your workplace, to inform practice and make recommendations for improvements to services for individuals or the community.
