Solihull Foundation Training (two day) West

Understand the Solihull Approach model as applied to working with children and young people with emotional needs.

The Solihull Approach is a nationally recognised training model with the underlying aim of promoting emotional health and well-being in children and families. It is targeted at both educational practitioners who are working with children and families and also parents and foster carers to help them understand their child better. The Solihull Approach is a good evidence-based model with strong theoretical foundations. It introduces a model for understanding the impact of relationships on health and wellbeing and the impact of adverse childhood experiences on health and wellbeing.

The course will cover three theoretical approaches from the psychology of attachment, counselling psychology and behaviourism. Links will be made with the importance of providing these foundations to support child development, with the emphasis on brain development. The three theoretical approaches are combined to form a highly applicable framework for working with children and families. Delegates will have opportunities to consider how they may use the approach in their work over the two days. Practice activities and reflections will be introduced to support delegates using The Solihull Approach methods.

This training is for those working directly with children who have emotional and behavioural difficulties e.g. pastoral care staff, FLOs, teaching assistants, teachers.
