Event description
Growing Confidence Training - 9 April 2020

About this Event

This workshop is designed to support youth workers by raising awareness and understanding about factors that influence the development of positive mental health and emotional wellbeing and how they can best promote it in themselves and the young people they work with. There are three sessions within the day which pull together a variety of current theories and latest research around Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES), resilience and neuroscience. The strength of Supporting Young People is that it is not wedded to any particular theory or approach but tries to reflect the latest thinking in these areas to enable participants to reflect on how this research can enhance their work practice.

Session 1: Why Relationships Matter

Session 2: Brains and Behaviour

Session 3: Understanding and Managing Stress

The aims of the course are:

1. To increase awareness of the factors that influence children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing.

2. To consider how brain development and behaviour are shaped by interactions and experiences with others.

3. To reflect on the latest research in this field and consider its implication for our own practice.

This workshop serves as a fundamental baseline of professional development in the field of mental health and wellbeing.

This training is for adult workers/ volunteers/ leaders aged 16+

Refreshments will be provided on the day, however please bring your own lunch. Failing that there is shops local to the office that you can walk to
