Event Details


This is a full day course for people working with children and young people in West Sussex.

This course is being delivered through a partnership between Coastal West Sussex Mind, Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and West Sussex County Council.

Aims and Outcomes

  • Awareness of Early Brain Development and Impact on functioning.
  • Exploration of the Reptilian and Mammalian brain functioning and relevance to attachment.
  • Parenting the brain (i.e. how to nurture it) - referring to Margot Sunderland’s work in this area.
  • Pat Crittenden critique of brain development and how this has developed on from Bowlby and Ainsworth.
  • Attachment styles and how to work with them.
  • Intervention strategies, direct work ideas for individual and group work.  This will involve actual examples of some of the strategies suggested during the afternoon’s experiential session.

Confidentiality needs to be adhered to throughout as real images of young peoples’ work will be used and whilst permission for this has been given, confidentiality and professional boundaries needs to be adhered to accordingly.

You will need to attend for the whole day and wear comfortable clothing.  Some of the sessions can be messy so this is essential!

Course Handbook will be given out on the day and certificates will be sent at later date.
