Before your first workshop you will be invited to register with the site which will mean you can access our powerpoints and resources. 


The first  workshop is an introduction to  three forms of stress- positive, tolerable and toxic - together with skill building in those areas most likely to be affected by early adversity- Dan Siegel's Hand Model and John Gottman's Emotion Coaching.

Learners will need to come to the second workshop ready to share stories of working with The Hand Model and Emotion Coaching. To support this please read chapter 3 'Building the staircase of the mind' in Dan Siegel's Whole Brain Child Workbook, take a look through The 3 Principles to Improve Outcomes for Children and Families or if you prefer watch Jack Shonkoff speaking  and familiarise yourself with our online resources including our elearning portal.
