Code: VL/19/014 Understanding Adoption in Schools

From September 2018 DTs’ role also extends to Previously Looked After children, who are now adopted or subject to Special Guardianship orders. This session explores some of the particular challenges faced by this group and introduces some resources schools can use to identify and meet their ongoing needs. The ATTACH Team is a multi-disciplinary therapeutic team (Clinical Psychologists, Senior Practitioners, Educational Psychologist) working with adoptive, special guardianship and foster care families in Oxfordshire. Our work uses attachment theory to understand the needs of children who have been neglected or abused and who no longer live with their birth parents.

Code: LAC/18/002 PACE for Teachers Workshop

PACE is an approach developed by Dr Dan Hughes, an American psychologist who works with traumatised children. PACE stands for Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy. Being PACEful enables you to have effective, empowering interactions with children who have experienced trauma and who, as a result, do not respond to you in the same way as other children you teach. It is a useful classroom tool for all children, not just those who have had a difficult start to life. This session is designed to help teachers and TAs to learn more about this approach and practice using it over the course of the afternoon workshop.
