The overall aim of this trauma informed course is to empower teachers to be the agent of change in helping the dysregulated child to regulate within the school environment and beyond.
Participants will learn:- - Psycho-education on overwhelm and trauma, the impact on the brain and related symptoms and behaviours. - To understand and manage challenging behaviour, from big feelings, to temper outbursts and anxieties. - To recognise triggers and how to respond in a child centred way to enable regulation. - To design and use classroom management strategies to create an atmosphere that promotes regulation rather than dysregulation. - To set limits and boundaries without shaming.
Course eligible for EPV days.
