Event description

Description

Maximum of 3 attendees per setting - if you would like training delivered to all staff at your setting, please get in touch: http://www.educationalpsychologywolverhampton.co.uk/

This is a free session offered by the Educational Psychology Service. The Educational Psychology Service applies psychological theory and research to problems and complex situations, and helps to meet a wide range of child and adolescent developmental needs, including special educational needs.

Emotionally-based school refusal (EBSR) is an umbrella term used to describe children and young people (CYP) who have severe difficulty attending school due to emotional factors. There is a broad range of research that has outlined the negative impact of EBSR on outcomes for C/YP. However, it has been found that intervening early and working with parents, schools and CYP themselves is associated with positive outcomes for CYP who have severe difficulty attending school.

What does this course cover?

  • Help staff distinguish and understand the difference between school-refusal and truancy
  • Explore motivating factors for non-attendance
  • Strategies for schools and parents to support C/YP refusing to attend school
  • Supportive strategies for C/YP to relieve anxieties around attending school

Free cancellation up until 48 hours before the event. If you cancel after this time your setting will be charged £30.

As this training is funded through Wolverhampton HeadStart, priority is given to those working in Wolverhampton or supporting children, young people and their families within Wolverhampton. If you work outside Wolverhampton and are interested in any of our sessions we may be able to offer you places if we are not fully booked or we may be able to provide the training for you however this would be charged. Please contact us to discuss.
