Code: SGC/21/0945 Conversations with Carers

This course will explore the crucial role that carers play as a key partner of Adult Social Care. 

We will look at key data about carers, including in relation to some of the challenges that are commonly faced. You will also benefit from the opportunity to reflect on your own experiences, personal and professional, of caring and carers, and to learn from the lived experiences of carers including a guest speaker from South Gloucestershire. The Carers’ Support Centre will share their expertise in relation to working with and supporting carers over many years. Alongside colleagues, you will explore how to apply 3Cs, strengths-based approaches and legal literacy in your engagement with carers in line with South Gloucestershire Council ‘Carer Practitioner Guidance’. A key theme throughout the day will be recognising the positive impact that you, as a practitioner, can have in promoting the rights and wellbeing of carers and as a result, the wellbeing of adult(s) they care for.

It entails validating children's emotions, setting limits where appropriate and problem-solving with the child to develop more effective behavioural strategies.

Code: SGC/21/0683 Therapeutic Life Story Work

In this training programme for South Gloucestershire, Richard Rose will work with practitioners to enhance their engagement with children and young people affected by early life trauma. Through his innovative and creative techniques, Richard will demonstrate ways of working that enable placements to become healthy and nurturing through enhanced understanding and attachment, with the goal of helping these young people achieve their full potential.

Who Should Attend?: Life Story Therapy will greatly benefit all those working with children affected by early life trauma including: those working with children in care; teachers; youth workers; therapists; and those who are involved in recovery work with children and families in need. If you are a professional working with children and young people affected by early life trauma in child protection, out of home care, youth work, education or involved in recovery work with children and families in need, this is a wonderful opportunity not to be missed.

This workshop provides participants with an introduction to the Life Story process and how this work helps children make sense of the past, so that what has happened to them does not dominate, control, or inhibit the present. Based on Richard's Rose book 'Life Story Therapy with Traumatised Children - A Model for Practice', attendees will be shown techniques that have been successfully utilised to assist children to communicate their trauma.

The workshop will be led by Richard Rose, Director of Child Trauma Intervention Services Ltd (CTIS) which seeks to engage with children affected by early life trauma and to help them achieve their full potential. Richard undertakes consultancy and training on Life Story Therapy and working with 'hard to reach' children and adolescents and develops academic training programmes in the UK and internationally. Prior to founding CTIS in 2011, Richard worked in the UK in local authority child protection and in the highly regarded residential therapeutic treatment agency SACCS, including four years as the Clinical Practice Director of the Mary Walsh Institute. Throughout his career, Richard has worked with children and their carers in out of home care and family placements, with the aim of enabling placements to become healthy and nurturing through enhanced understanding and attachment. He is the author of three books including Life Story Therapy: A new therapy for traumatised children – A model for practice, published in 2012 and Innovative Therapeutic Life Story Work 2017. He is an Adjunct Associate Professor of Social Work and Social Policy at La Trobe University.
