As lockdown gradually lifts and we move into new stages, the pressure of the unknown continues on top of the impact already experienced across the last three months.
This course will pull together the research and evidence to help schools understand the potential impact on different pupils and how we can best support all pupils to process their experiences and be able to move forward most effectively.
Christine Davies, who is the Head of Training for Trauma in Schools UK, will be contributing extensively to the course. Christine will deliver a detailed focus on understanding and dealing with the traumatic effects of the pandemic on your students: identifying the unique psychological impacts of the Covid-19 epidemic on children and young people resulting from disrupted routines, loss of personal agency and disconnection from family, friends and favourite activities. It will offer both underpinning theory and practical application, to enable participants to understand the impact of the crisis on their pupils and their support needs as they move forward to find a new normal when a safe return to school takes place.
- support staff to recognise, plan for and respond to the range of behaviours, difficulties and wellbeing support needs they may expect from pupils returning to school
- help schools to create an environment of safety for pupils following emotional trauma and fear that may have resulted from lockdown
- understand brain function in response to high stress and trauma in the context of the pandemic
- how to respond to different responses from children to their experiences
- how to be an emotionally available adult in the classroom
- how to use the physical and psychological environments to build emotional safety
- to look at ways that sensory experiences can help self-regulation and instil a sense of calm
- how to help build pupils’ ability to reflect on their experiences during lock down and form hopes for the future, marking new beginnings
