About this event

Are you a professional who works with deaf children and young people? Do you want creative ideas to help you support their emotional health and well-being?

Our Healthy Minds online workshops will help you learn how to run activities to help support the emotional health and wellbeing of deaf children and young people.

Workshop Overview

Our Healthy Minds programme tackles issues such as low self-esteem, isolation, stress and anxiety. It encourages the use of positive strategies for dealing with change, managing deafness, developing confidence and building social skills.

During these online workshops, you will learn how to effectively use our Healthy Minds guidance document. You will have the opportunity to review some of the Healthy Minds activities and share thoughts and ideas with other professionals.

You’ll leave feeling inspired and confident to encourage deaf children and young people to explore ideas and create strategies to help prevent low self-esteem and poor mental health.

Key Themes

  • Exploring what a Healthy Mind is and why it is important
  • Ways to develop good emotional vocabulary
  • Identifying support mechanisms and networks
  • Understanding identity
  • Owning and managing deafness

After the training

As part of our online programme we have also launched the following. You will be given access to these once you have completed the online training course:

  • Our updated Healthy Minds guidance: A detailed document to help guide you through using our Healthy Minds programme in your work.
  • Our new Healthy Minds message board: an online platform where professionals who are putting the Healthy Minds programme into practice can share innovations, ideas, and challenges.

These workshops are designed for all education, health and social care professionals working with deaf children and young people.

FAQs

Do I need to attend all 4 sessions?

Yes, please only sign up if you are able to attend all 4 sessions. Each session will be different. You will not be able to complete the course and receive your certificate if you do not attend all sessions.

I work with younger children/teenagers – will the training be suitable?

We believe the Healthy Minds guidance is suitable for all ages and abilities. The key is in the skills of the facilitator. As part of the online workshops, the trainer will encourage delegates to reflect on the children they support and consider how they can creatively amend some of the activities or tools to meet the needs of the children they have in mind.

Can we have the resources without attending the training?

As part of our quality assurance – the Healthy Minds guidance document is only available for those who have attended the online training.

Can I join using any device?

Do I need to do any prep before attending?

Yes, you will need to complete the following two tasks prior to the first workshop:

  • pre-event survey: a mandatory survey to gauge current confidence levels
  • e-learning module: ‘Healthy Minds for professionals, pre-event information’ is a mandatory e-learning module that will take roughly 30 minutes to complete.

Both of these will be available for completion on our online training hub, the week before the workshop.
