Course: 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Location: london


Many children and young people struggle in our educational environments due to their early experiences. About 40% of children are said to have an insecure attachment style which means they find it difficult to build relationships and to trust people. Schools need to be aware of these children and young people who may be expressing their anxieties in difficult behaviour, disengagement in learning or just not achieving as they could. This course will explain the impacts on the brain of early trauma as well as the theory of Attachment. Common issues for children like shame, trust, memory and self-regulation will be explored along with some strategies of how to help and support children with insecure Attachments. 



  • To understand the impact of early trauma on learning and to be able to identify those with insecure attachments.
  • To be able to help and support vulnerable children and young people to be able to learn

“Fantastic training – so important for schools to have this level of understanding about the needs of children who have experienced trauma”.
Specialist SEN Teacher, Stockport
“The training provides useful information for spotting signs and provides strategies that we can implement to support our pupils. The best thing about the training was the trainer sharing real life examples of difficulties and ways in which they could be dealt with. Time to think about pupils in my own setting was good too. Thank you – very informative and practical suggestions which I can use to support pupils”.
Deputy Headteacher, Wakefield
“Only improvement would be to have all the teachers from the school I work at to be here at the training. Brilliant, informative, refreshing, Enjoyed it very much. Thank you!”
Pastoral Support Manager, Chester
