Building confidence for school staff around therapeutic themes can contribute to the essence of my approach, which pays attention to making whole school cultural shifts towards an expanding wellbeing-driven ethos. As part of this package, I deliver training on such themes as:
Expanding, enriching and embeding therapeutic services in your school
Bereavement and Loss
Supporting young people through loss
Attachment and its implications in schools
Self-harm and suicide
Behaviour as communication
Adverse Childhood Experiences and schools
Rebuilding relationships post-pandemic
...and many more.
Pastoral and behaviour teams:
I run programmes of training for pastoral and behavioural support teams who are ideally placed to apply the notion of behaviour as communication and thus can valuably mentor young people who struggle in school.
Peer Mentor training
Have you considered the training of older students as part of a peer mentoring programme? This is another way to instil emotional health as a priority school-wide, with the principles of wellness, empathy and support cascading through the year-groups.
