Supporting children and young people who internalise their distress
About this event
There are many reasons why children internalise their distress rather than act out. They can become invisible to those working with them – thought to be quiet, shy or well behaved children – when actually, they are in pain.
This workshop will explore why some children are unable to show their feelings in a way that helps them access help and support. You will learn how to recognise, support and communicate effectively with these children when they need you most.
- 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.
