£ Included in ASK Offer

Friday 12 November and Monday 15 November, Attend All Days

Domestic violence, alcohol and drug abuse, a decline in parental mental health, post- natal depression, forced migration, and removal from the birth home can all cause trauma to children’s brains which result in attachment difficulties. Increasingly, many children and young people have social and emotional needs that go beyond what the majority of school staff has been trained to deal with. Many of these children underachieve in school. This training will help you to help them to access educational opportunities.
