‘Butterflies and Bees’ This course follows on from 'Why and How?' Attachment and Emotional Health for Young People Looked After. A training course designed to support foster carers, adopters and special guardians in developing their ability and confidence to respond therapeutically to the children in their care. This in-depth course is a key intervention from the Thinking Aloud team, designed to help you as carers develop your ability to support the children in your care. We will cover topics such as attachment and trauma, as well as consider different behaviours that might be difficult to manage within the home. We will spend some time thinking about your responses to difficulties in your relationships with the young people in your care, and discover and practice a range of practical techniques to improve their and your wellbeing. Please note that priority may need to be given to certain carers identified by the Family Placement and/or Thinking Aloud Team.Essential Information

This ½ day training course is organised by South Gloucestershire’s Early Help Partnership Support Team and is targeted at professionals working directly with children and families. Recognising when families need early support is everyone’s responsibility and this multi-agency course aims to give professionals the opportunity to understand more about Early Help and how early intervention can help to improve outcomes for children and their families. This course will also cover basic information about the Early Help/ SAFeh assessment and the processes and procedures for making a referral to South Gloucestershire’s Children’s Services.Essential Information
More details about this course will follow. 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.
We are currently waiting for a date for this course, but if you are interested in attending, please request a place so that you can be informed as soon as the date has been arranged.
