Why do some children behave the way they do and how can we help them? This is fantastic Mental Health training for education staff working with Adopted, Looked After or Vulnerable Pupils. It would be beneficial to complete our Mental Health First Aid training first, but not essential.
This day long course is delivered by an external trainer, Lisa Wisher, who is a qualified Mental Health First Aid England Instructor, Social Worker, Psychotherapist (in Advanced Training) and adopter.
The core aims of the programme are to:
The content is a mixture of up to date theory and research on attachment and neuroscience, which will help participants understand the often contradictory and difficult behaviour of some pupils.
It also provides an opportunity to learn and identify a range of practical and tried and tested strategies, which can be adapted to different educational settings to help children who have been adopted, looked after or who remain in difficult home environments. The course also provides an interactive opportunity for participants to bring their own individual case studies – to help identify bespoke strategies for their pupil/s.
“Lisa’s training was transformational – it enabled teachers and support staff to really appreciate what was behind some of the behaviours we see in the classroom and to deal with the behaviour in a non-confrontational way to that teaching & learning wasn’t compromised”Abraham Guest in Wigan -2015
