Course description

Understanding the importance of attachment and relationships on brain development and the nervous system
Developing and using the PACE approach to connect with children, de-escalate situations, build relationships and solve problems.

The session will be lead by Chris Webb.

Training objectives

Learn about how the brain develops in response to secure attachment, and the difficulties that arise as a result of insecure attachments
Learn about the need to regulate children who are distressed and stressed (before attempting to engage in restorative work): Regulate, relate, reason, repair
Know about the PACE approach and how to use it to effectively de-escalate situations in the classrooms.

Learning outcomes

Candidates will be better able to :

• Understand challenging behaviour: what it means, how it makes us feel – and how to understand it
• Build relationships to effectively reduce stress, restore regulation and build connections with pupils (the PACE approach: Playfulness. Acceptance. Curiosity. Empathy)
• Understand how to better resolve conflict and solving problems: growing the capacity for resilience, responsibility-taking, and solution seeking, in children and young people
