PAST EVENTS

WEBINAR

School Staff Self-care: Sustaining ourselves through COVID-19

This session is designed to be the first of two. It provides an essential basis for the following webinar which focuses on co-regulation and ways to support students in school. It focuses on developing school staff skills in anchoring in 'safe and social' state to help our students when they are struggling. The webinar is designed as an introduction to trauma sensitive responses to children's behaviour.

 

There will be an opportunity to explore the idea that our nervous system is designed both for connection with other people and to protect us from threat. We will learn about the different emotional and physiological states that our current scientific understanding suggests that all humans can enter as they try to respond to threat in their environment- 'safe and social', 'alert and anxious' and 'overwhelmed/ shutdown'. The event will include teaching about the current ideas about physiology as well as experiential learning.

There will be a focus on practical strategies for 'anchoring in safety' so that we are in a position to support and help our students as they return to school.

 

This webinar is an abridged version of our whole school training, adapted for the constraints of online learning. At 90 minutes it is designed to fit into the busy schedules of school staff.

WEBINAR

Co-regulation: Sustaining our students through COVID-19

This session is designed to follow on from the webinar - 'School Staff Self-care'. It focuses on using our ability to anchor in 'safe and social' state to help our students when they are struggling. The webinar is designed to support adults to come alongside children who are feeling distressed in order to support them, using the relationship with the adult as a source of safety and security, rather than focusing on strategies for managing behaviour.

There will be an opportunity to explore the concept of co-regulation and learn more about what we know of the physiology which underpins our ability to make and sustain social connections.

There will also be short activities offering experiential learning, where practitioners will have the opportunity to think carefully about what might be going on for students when they do not follow instructions, cannot stay on task or behave in verbally or physically aggressive ways. There will be a focus on both pro-active strategies to help students stay in a 'safe and social state', and in ways to help students move out of 'fight or flight' and 'overwhelmed/ shutdown' states. These are particularly important skills to be able to draw on as we go back into school environments where we need to be grounded in order to support children and young people effectively.

This webinar is an abridged version of our whole school training, adapted for the constraints of online learning. At 90 minutes it is designed to fit into the busy schedules of school staff.
