About this Event

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.

There has been an increasing awareness of the impact of children and young people’s emotional well-being on their engagement in school and being able to reach their full potential. The use of counselling skills is one effective way to support emotional well-being. Central to counselling is the relationship between skilled helper and client, therefore school staff are in a great position to provide this support as they already have established relationships with the children/ young people. It is important for staff to have an understanding of counselling skills so that they can provide safe and helpful support.

What does this course cover?

• What are counselling skills?

• Consider different contexts where counselling skills may be appropriate

• To practise using counselling skills

• To enhance and strengthen skills that you may already be using.

Who is the course for?

Relevant to all staff, particularly those with a pastoral role. It is also relevant to non-school staff who have a direct role working with children and young people.

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