Attachment in the classroom

This two part training is aimed at staff in schools who would like to gain an understanding into attachment in children, including:

In Part One participants will:

  • Gain a basic understanding of neuroscience and what happens to a child’s brain when they are angry
  • Understand what causes a child to meltdown
  • Learn how to help children regulate their emotions
  • Learn how we can listen more effectively and as a result have children listen to us
  • Acquire strategies to support conflict resolution and enable children problem solve
  • Have the opportunity to practice techniques both in a course environment and back in school
  • Receive support to effectively apply strategies in their own work

In Part Two participants will:

  • Reflect on their experiences putting some of the learnt skills into practice
  • Discuss and feedback what worked, what didn’t work so well and receive support in identified areas
  • Gain a further understanding about neuroscience and how to integrate the different parts of the brain
  • Have further opportunities to practice techniques

Course participants will also be provided with all necessary resources to set up and deliver a listening space for pupils in their school, for example a weekly self-referral lunchtime drop in service. Time during the course will also be given to action plan for putting a service into place.
