Code: SGC/24/0550 Bitesize awareness training on Reducing Parental Conflict


Relationships Matter

Conflict in relationships is part of everyday life, evidence suggests that conflict between parents is normal, but if exposure is frequent, intense, and poorly resolved, this can have a damaging impact on children, resulting in long-term mental health issues, emotional, behavioural, and academic problems as they grow up.

Children of all ages can be affected by destructive interparental conflict.

The Reducing Parental Conflict awareness workshop is suitable for those supporting children and their families especially those working within children’s social care, early help, health, education, and the voluntary sector.

Code: SGC/24/0383 Understanding blocked care and the pace model: a training session for foster carers

During the training session foster carers will get a chance to explore the concepts of ‘blocked trust’ and ‘blocked care’ and how these may pose barriers to building relationships with the children they care for. The Dan Hughes model of PACE (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity, Empathy) will be introduced as one way we can begin to build positive relationships with children.

Code: SGC/24/0493 Training for Connected carers/SGO - Trauma and Attachment

What is it? This is a new dedicated Induction, Training and Support Group for Connected Carers, Including Special Guardians Why are we running it? We recognise that your situation is very different to that of main stream foster carers. The new role that you find yourself in now, is often not a pathway you may have planned on taking. Unlike foster carers, you are thrown in at the deep end without having had a course to prepare you for what lies ahead, and how ‘The System’ works. This course aims to do that as well as recognise the particular difficulties that you as ‘Kinship Carers’, whatever your role, face. How will it run? There will be six sessions, each lasting approximately 2-2.5 hours, which will take place over the course of a year. It is hoped that you will attend all six, but as new carers arrive, they can join the programme at any stage. The sessions will be led in the main by Social workers from our team. . This session will focus on: Trauma and Attachment
