Key Learning

  • How future planning can help children and young people in finding focus and motivation
  • Brain functions, and how they link to goal attainment
  • Strategies to help children identify what is important to them, their strengths and who can support them
  • Tools to create realistic, practical timelines with children and young people for moving towards their goal

Future planning increases self-confidence, resilience and helps young people to make more informed decisions. Develop your practice in supporting children and young people to understand where they are in life and what they want to work towards – whether in relation to their education, relationships, health or care.

This webinar will explore brain development, functions and emotional regulation and how these link to goal attainment. You will learn how to create a person-centred pathway, a practical tool that can support young people with their goals, as well as your own professional development.
