Code: LAC/19/008 PACE for Teachers Workshop

Book now course closing soon

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.
