Relationships and the brain: helping children and young people build resilience


05/12/2019 09:30






About this event

This workshop will focus on how the relationships that practitioners and carers build with children and young people, in good and challenging times, mould developing brains and can trigger positive changes to help build resilience.

Key learning:

  • How our understanding of the brain should inform the way we view relationships
  • The impact of trauma on relationships
  • How to work with children and young people who have difficulties in forming relationships.
