Code: LAC/21/004 PACE for School Staff

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.

Code: LAC/21/014 Session 1: Children in Need – Born to love and to be loved

Delivered by Luke Rogers - BEM Director of Strategy, The Care Leaders. This session helps practitioners understand the issues for young people before they come into care and how this impacts them. In this session we take an overview of the issues that affect children that may lead to them coming into the care system. We look at the child within the systems that affect them, including the family, school, community and wider society. We recognise that what affects children, also affects others and how attachment relationships and trauma are key to understanding what can goes wrong and how children can be supported to recover and become resilient. Please review course objectives for booking instructions, as this is an external event.

Code: LAC/21/015 Session 2: Messages in Behaviour – What children are really telling us

Delivered by Luke Rogers - BEM Director of Strategy, The Care Leaders. This session will help you recognise and respond to messages in children’s behaviour. Our systems are often set up to ‘manage’ behaviour young people display rather than helping us understand why they are behaving as they do and what their behaviour communicates. This type of approach leads to services having a knowledge gap and practitioners missing important messages within behaviour and the causes of it. The language we use becomes a barrier between adults and children. Terms like ‘complex’, ‘challenging’ or ‘risk taking’ to describe behaviour leave young people feeling misunderstood and unheard, practitioners worried and overwhelmed and services not responding to what young people need. Practitioners deserve the knowledge to understand messages in children’s behaviour so they can help children understand themselves. Please review course objectives for booking instructions, as this is an external event.

Code: LAC/21/008 Speech, Language and Communication Needs and challenging behaviour

There is a well-researched and clearly demonstrated link between Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) and challenging behaviour. Research also shows us that care experienced children are much more likely than their peers to experience SLCN. We know that addressing SLCN, which are often hidden needs, can reduce challenging behaviour by meeting the underlying need. This session will introduce you to some of the reasons for the higher incidence of SLCN in children we care for in terms of how language and communication develop. We will present some resources we have developed with a range of services across the Local Authority to support schools in identifying and addressing these needs’

Code: LAC/21/016 Session 3: Entering Care – The real reasons children enter care

Delivered by Luke Rogers - BEM Director of Strategy, The Care Leaders. This session explores the real-life experience of young people entering care. When young people enter care, it can seem like the system takes a young person’s identity and gives them a new one, projecting them into a confusing world with new terminologies and often leaving them with little understanding of what’s happening. Systems are set up to safeguard children, which can sometimes leave families in cycles of trauma and negative family dynamics. Services become overwhelmed with the increasing numbers of young people entering care and become more stretched. Children feel confused and lost in the system; parents are hurt and often frightened, whilst practitioners are under pressure to ensure all young people are safe. Families deserve to be supported and children have a right to understand what’s happening to them. Please review course objectives for booking instructions, as this is an external event.

Code: LAC/21/017 Session 4: Impact of Recording - How statutory recording can cause stigma

Delivered by Luke Rogers - BEM Director of Strategy, The Care Leaders. This session gives you the skills to record information that truly represents children and ensures they access services they need. We have all read information about children that only focuses on the negative things in their lives, creating barriers for young people to access important services such as education. Placements often reject children when they read this information, leaving social care under pressure to find adequate support for young people, whilst we share stories about young people that they didn’t author and don’t see. Schools are frustrated at the lack of information; placements feel guilty they can’t help; social workers are overwhelmed and all the while young people are unheard and misrepresented. Every child deserves to be represented authentically and to access support they need and deserve. Please review course objectives for booking instructions, as this is an external event.
