Trauma, Resilience and the School Community

Event code SCH 20/657 
Event description Pupils' experiences during lockdown have varied and many will return to schools in September eager to see friends and engage in learning. Others who have experienced trauma and adversity may find the transition more challenging. For vulnerable pupils who experienced problems with self-regulation prior to the lockdown these difficulties may now be amplified and some may require additional support to manage their emotional and behavioural responses when schools reopen for the new term.

This webinar promotes a whole school, trauma and resilience led approach to promote the wellbeing and self-regulation of vulnerable pupils. The session is informed by the biology of trauma and ongoing stress. .Evidence-based strategies will be considered at individual, class, and whole school level.

The session runs for 1.5 hours and is an introduction to the psychology and biology of trauma and resilience. It is relevant for staff in schools supporting CYP who have experienced trauma, including issues arising from the Covid -19 pandemic. There will be a short pre-session activity to complete.

You will be sent a 'Microsoft Teams' invite for the webinar which will include joining instructions and details of the pre-session activity. The pre course activity will be sent out the week before the session.

You will receive a joining link for the Webinar the day before the course commences. The certificate will be accessed through CPD online. You will be emailed once this is available.
