The Human Bridge to Recovery – Settling To Learn

It is now time to update our policies and practices in schools in line with the latest research into the impact of ACEs, Nurture, Attachment and Trauma. There are many children and young people currently misunderstood due to their behaviour. We need to be translators of behaviour as behaviour is communication. We need to understand the big asks for these pupils so that we can provide the most appropriate support, to enable them to both recover and to settle to learn in the classroom. As experienced practitioners, one of our TouchBase trainers will explain the power of facilitating rich, relational interventions; share ways of being and some tools for the journey so that we are all better equipped to be truly inclusive.

Bespoke courses, for example Keynotes, Workshops and Insets available on request.

7 Day Attachment Lead Course

This 7-day modular training course has been developed to enable staff themselves to become Attachment Leads in their schools, local authorities and other settings.

Attachment Leads are those who intend to integrate attachment aware and trauma responsive ways of being to impact both their policies and practices. The course is for those determined to provide alternative practices to enable all children and young people to be fully included in school, college and their communities, making the most of all the educative opportunities on offer. The course is rooted in attachment awareness and trauma responsive practices. By attending to the attachment and regulatory systems of these children and young people, they can have an opportunity to settle to learn. This course will be based on the latest findings around interventions to support those affected by developmental trauma, loss and insecurity of attachment. All our work is influenced by attachment theory, intersubjectivity theory, object-relations theory and polyvagal theory. The intensive 7-day course is aimed primarily at support staff (Mentors, Keyworkers, TAs) and their Senior Managers who are determined include young people in their schools, colleges and communities who are vulnerable, a cause for concern, in need, at risk, in care, on special guardianships or adopted. Virtual School Head teachers, the Virtual School team and various behaviour outreach services have attended. Educational Psychologists have also participated as part of their doctorates at Queens University in Belfast. Social workers are most welcome too!

Bespoke 7 Day Attachment Lead Courses

Virtual Schools Team Training – a specialist 7 day training for all those on the Virtual School Team

Those responsible for children in care and those care-experienced need to be at the cutting edge, ready to lead progressive schools into attachment-aware, trauma-responsive policy and practice (AATR). Based on the latest research in child development, attachment, and neuroscience, this course supports those providing advices, leading groups, managing transitions, facilitating PEPs and LAC reviews, so that all those who have suffered Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can have every opportunity possible to recover and function well at home, in their schools, and out and about in their local communities. AATR support facilitates inclusion on every level.

After running a successful pilot in Middlesbrough, it has been decided to roll out the course in this new academic year 2019/20. This specialist 7-day course is designed to increase confidence and skill in communicating well on behalf of children and young people in care or care-experienced, who are often communicating distress through their behaviours.

The course will cover a lot of relevant and up-to-date content such as what ACEs are, what recovery from ACEs looks like, what toxic stress can do to both bodies and minds, intersubjectivity theory when there has been disruption, and polyvagal theory, in relation to how our nervous systems function and what happens when things go wrong.

We will be considering how human beings function best by respecting biology. We will do this by following the neurosequential model recommended by Dr Bruce Perry (child trauma expert) – Regulate, Relate and Reason. We will also be adding in the importance of Repair as these children and young people have toxic shame in the mix and so will need differentiated support for this. The course will challenge who we are, how we are, and what we do, by teaching how to integrate Theraplay, Sensory Attachment Interventions (SAI) and Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP) informed practice as part of their advocacy work.
