Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th December 2021.
10am – 4pm Daily
Focusing on developing a framework for assisting parents / carers / staff in providing children/adolescents with the nurturing replacement experiences they require to regulate, through incorporating the core principles of Bruce Perry’s Neuro-sequential model, Dan Hughes PACE Parenting Model and Dan Siegel’s Rupture and Repair process. Participants will explore how positive reinforcement supports children’s and adolescent growth and development, and how negative reinforcement can be harmful to children and adolescents who have been exposed to developmental trauma. Participants will develop tools and strategies to enable them to provide psychoeducation to parents/carers/ staff in order to educate, support and guide parents/carers/staff to support a child/adolescent through the different stages of an escalation/outburst, including proactive strategies for preventing further escalation during the triggering phase, guidance around managing the outburst and key strategies for supporting the child’s /adolescents recovery and reconnection to the parent/carer post-escalation.
