Code: SGC/21/0853 Emotion Coaching

What is emotion coaching? Emotion coaching was first introduced by John Gottman and his colleagues in the USA. Emotion coaching is about helping children to become more aware of their emotions and to manage their own feelings particularly during instances of misbehaviour. It entails validating children's emotions, setting limits where appropriate and problem-solving with the child to develop more effective behavioural strategies.

The Course will run from 10:00 to 11:30, but you will able to log into the meeting from 9:45, so that we can ensure a prompt start at 10:00


Guidance for Microsoft Teams Foster Carers Training

 
How to join the meeting:

Anyone with a business or consumer email account can participate as a guest in Teams, with access to team chats, meetings, and screenshare


1. Go to the meeting invite, (the email we will send you), and select Join Microsoft Teams Meeting.

2. That will open a webpage, where you'll see two choices: Download the Windows app and Join on the web instead. Your browser may ask if it's OK for Teams to use your microphone and camera. Be sure to allow it so you'll be seen and heard in your meeting.

3. Enter your name and choose your audio and video settings. Select Phone audio if you want to listen to the meeting on your mobile phone.

4. When you're ready, hit Join now.

5. This will bring you into the lobby. Teams will notify the meeting organiser that you are there, and someone in the meeting can then admit you. 

Protocol for running the meeting with safeguarding considerations:

1. Please arrive from 9:45 am "Catherine Charlton” will admit you from the lobby. This is to make sure that only foster carers and team members will be in the meeting.

2. When you enter, please arrive with your volume on “mute”

3. Please make sure that your name on the screen is just your first name with the first letter of your surname; for example, Catherine C. This is to maintain your confidentiality. You will not be admitted to the meeting without your name typed in the box because that way we make sure only people who have been invited attend. So, you have to type it in before you click “join”

4. Please always keep your video on so that we know who is “in the room”

5. Please do not use names of children during the meeting, this is to maintain their confidentiality

6. We will not be recording the meeting, please do not do so either

7. If you want to ask a question or make a comment, please type it into the “chat” function. The person who is moderating the meeting can then ask you to unmute and speak to the whole meeting

Code: SGC/21/0844 FCSG: Parenting Teenagers Support Group


 
This support group has been set up specifically for carers of teenagers, who may be struggling, or would like to better cope with some of the behaviours that their young people are showing. 


The group will be facilitated by Thinking Aloud and will aim to meet once every 6 weeks during term time. The programme will very much be determined by yourselves, as this series of support groups has been set up with you in mind to meet your current needs.



It would be helpful if you could email catherine.charlton@southglos.gov.uk  any particular issues that you would perhaps like covered in advance, as a more detailed programme could be drawn up ahead of the sessions, if we know what the issues are.

Code: SGC/21/0108 Therapeutic Parenting Pick 'n' Mix (EVENT FULL)

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. For the moment, carers who had registered their interest on the April Butterflies and Bees course have been ransferred across to this course that will begin in September.


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.
