About The Event

There is a population of pupils in schools who seem unable to access learning and the social life within the school. They do not engage and achieve, nor develop with confidence and enthusiasm. These children and young people are often reactive, impulsive and frequently in a highly aroused state; they are vigilant for danger and possible vulnerability. Increasingly, educators are becoming aware that many such children and young people have issues relating to insecure attachment to primary carers, and often have complex trauma histories.

This workshop, which link theory to relevant, down-to-earth practice, aims to demystify attachment and trauma, raising awareness of the needs of children and young people who have experienced early adversity, and also to discuss practical interventions.
