What’s it about

Evidence from neuroscience studies emphasise  the role meaningful environments have on children’s social and emotional well being. Research highlights the benefits of secure bonds with supportive and attentive caregivers in safe, peaceful, and predictable environments. In this two part series, which will focus on working with children aged 0-5 you will learn how to stay calm and remain in right relationships with children who are challenging in their behaviour. We will explore how to support children as they learn social behaviours necessary for peaceful play. Throughout this series you will broaden your repertoire of respectful tactics to use when children disengage and misbehave and the series approach will provide the opportunity to practice new skills between sessions and reflect and learn to better embed your new skills in everyday practice. Participants will learn:
