What you will learn?  

Care experienced children and young people are almost unavoidably exposed to trauma, either throughout their early childhood experiences, or the processes of the care system itself.

This session explores the concept of post-traumatic growth, what this means and what this can look like for children and young people in care.

We’ll consider post-traumatic stress disorder and compare the different factors that may lead to or impact post-traumatic growth.

This leads to discussion, activities and resources that enhance understanding and contribute to practice whereby young people are surrounded in environments and people that facilitate healing and post-traumatic growth.

Learning Outcomes
 An understanding of the concept of post-traumatic growth and how this may represent itself in children and young people.

 An understanding of the factors, characteristics and environments that support post-traumatic growth.

 An insight into the potential ‘downside’ of resilience.

 Resources, tips and tricks to take back to practice that will facilitate environments that support post-traumatic growth.

What our learners say about us  

These sessions helped me gain a deeper understanding of child behaviour and development. From learning about the four different ages and social development stages to decoding behaviour triggers, this platform provided invaluable insights that have transformed my approach to managing behaviour.

I find this course to be an essential resource for enhancing communication and support strategies. The course on transitions and trauma highlighted the importance of forward planning, while the PACES communication toolkit has equipped me with practical tools to effectively engage with students. This platform truly empowers leaders to create positive learning environments.

This platform has been instrumental in empowering me as a virtual school leader. From understanding the theory behind behaviour to addressing age bias and involving children in decision-making, this platform offers comprehensive resources that have elevated my leadership skills. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to make a meaningful impact in the lives of their students
