Description

There are many reasons why children internalise their distress. Often assumed to be quiet, shy or well-behaved when actually they are in pain, they can become invisible to those working with them.

This training workshop will explore how to recognise, support and communicate effectively with children who are unable to show their feelings when they need you most.

"This was an excellent webinar and really made me think about the interactions I have with the children I work with. I will slow down my approach with these children and spend a lot more time building relationship and trust." - Previous webinar attendee, May 2020

Key learning:

  • Trauma, attachment, childhood maltreatment, and how children internalise their distress
  • Relationship-building and communication skills
  • Using creative tools and techniques to engage children and young people.
