About this event:
For a school to be truly 'trauma informed' the right training needs to be accessed that goes beyond looking at A.C.Es and how these present and are assessed. A deeper understanding of dissociation and the causes of it are necessary.
We need to be able to view the child's behaviour within the context of the relationship and as a form of communication.
It is hard to know how to support a child who has been through either sexual, physical or emotional abuse?
Teaching assistants are the bedrock of implementing true trauma informed practice in the classroom. This workshop covers the following
Why do children dissociate?
How to recognize dissociation in a child ?
What type of situation and actions may increase dissociation in an educational setting?
How do you provide safety and help regulate the child again?
How to deal with 'naughty' behaviour .
Why relationships and friendships provide such difficult problems and what teaching staff can do to help?
