Supporting children and young people who internalise their distress
Update to this learning programme
As part of our organisational response to the COVID-19 virus, Children in Scotland has adapted our training and events programme to a digital webinar format for the foreseeable future.
We're running this webinar as an abbreviated version of the full-day training course detailed below, due to the coronavirus outbreak. This list of webinars will be added to regularly so please do revisit the site to see what’s new.
We believe it is important that the sector continues to build resilient networks, share helpful resources and develop the skills our workforce needs to provide high-quality support to children and young people.
As such we will be rescheduling and/or changing the format of our upcoming events. Please note that our Learning and Events team will be in touch with everyone who has booked a place at an April -May event to confirm arrangements.
Our office is now closed and staff will be working from home – you can contact the team using this email
About this event
There are many reasons why children internalise their distress. Often assumed to be quiet, shy or well-behaved when actually they are in pain, they can become invisible to those working with them.
This training workshop will explore how to recognise, support and communicate effectively with children who are unable to show their feelings 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.
