Event description

Description

It can be difficult to know what issues our children and young people are experiencing, let alone know how to best support them, especially if we are not trained wellbeing practitioners ourselves.


So, what can we do to support the outcomes of children; vulnerable young people in particular?
By understanding how the brain grows and develops from birth to adulthood, we can start to understand how experiences shape children’s brains; impacting not only on learning capacity, but mental health, self-esteem and resilience.


By understanding firstly how to support the healthy development of the brain, and secondly by maximising your power of your relationship with these children, we can learn how to nurture social and emotional growth to create happy, healthy and well-balanced children and young people.


Living, Learning and ‘Being’ Well; Developing the Young Brain
Our growing understanding of the developing brain is no longer just a topic for neuroscientists, and we now understand that every human interaction a child experiences affects their developing brain. By looking at child development from a neurological perspective, this session will help you understand how the brain is constructed from birth; and how it constantly changes according to the environment it finds itself in. Most importantly, you will understand how the adults who work and live with children and young people have an enormous impact; positively and negatively; on how they develop, learn and behave.


This session will help you to understand why so many children experience difficulties managing their emotions, behaviour and relationships with their peers and adults, and why some children are so prone to anxiety, anger and poor mental health. In better understanding the brain, we can make simple but profound changes to ensure that both our day-to-day practice and specific interventions are designed to affect positive change at a neurological level; helping to create better regulated and stable children by maximising the brain’s capacity to learn well, and to ‘be’ well.
