Code: SGC/21/0108 Therapeutic Parenting Pick 'n' Mix

Butterflies and Bees is changing its name to Therapeutic Parenting Pick 'n' Mix
As many of you will be aware, Butterflies and Bees has been running for a number of years now. It has seen many changes during this time, not least due to the varying knowledge and experience that our Thinking Aloud Team bring to the courses, but also as further research into trauma continues to develop our understanding of how to support and respond to children and young people therapeutically. As a result Kirsty Fraser, feels that the course has changed quite dramatically from what it originally was and feels that now is the time to update and rename the intervention so that it better describes the outcomes that Thinking Aloud are hoping to provide. As a result they will be using the time between now and September to develop their new intervention. They are hoping to offer some focus groups/workshops for carers and young people over the Summer to help develop the course. This will be called Therapeutic Parenting Pick 'n' Mix, based on the recognition that both young people and carers have individual needs and responses to strategies and techniques. As I receive more details about this course so these shall be shared with you. 

More details will follow


Please note: By booking onto this course, you are consenting to your contact details being passed onto the trainer. This is so they can send the Zoom invitation to you.

Code: SGC/21/1153 Light Touch NVR for Foster Carers

We are running a pilot Non-violence resistant training (NVR) ‘light’ course for foster carers across 6 weeks from November to January
Non-violence resistant is a therapeutic approach to reducing the instances of aggressive and/or violent behaviour from children and young people towards their carers.
We want to offer an introduction to the principles which underpin NVR and to support carers in making sense of aggressive/violent behaviour their children and young people display.
Each week we will go through an NVR principle and corresponding techniques which may help to reduce escalations of aggression and violence in the home.
By the end of the training, we hope to have provided you with the tools to make sense of why aggression and violence can occur and escalate from young people towards their carers. We also aim to provide you with techniques to reduce escalation of aggression and techniques to facilitate the ‘resistance’ of violence in the home.

o Week 1: Wednesday 3rd November 10am-12pm, introduce and gain an understanding of NVR
o Week 2: Wednesday 10th November 10am-12pm, what does it involve - summary
o Week 3: Wednesday 24th November 10am-12pm, introduction to escalation patterns
o Week 4, Wednesday 1st December 10am-12pm, the concept and relevance of parental parents to support our young people to make good choice,
o Week 5, Wednesday 8st December 10am-12pm, the concept of supporters and the circle of concern
o Week 6, Wednesday 12th Jan 10am-12pm, to identify and prioritise behaviours of concern and the concept of reparation acts
