Mindful Emotion Coaching and Adverse Childhood Experience
EHCAP is supporting the Somerset response to COVID-19 by providing reduced price (£45 per session) trauma-informed, healing-centred coaching for Somerset professionals, young people, parents and families. Click this link to contact EHCAP and request an online coaching session. If your son or daughter attends Reckleford, Birchfield, Milford or Little Discoveries Early Years setting in Yeovil you will have free acces to coaching as part of our school readiness work.
In 2020-21 EHCAP will be rolling out Mindful Emotion Coaching and Adverse Childhood Experience (MACE) training across Somerset with Public Health (Somerset County Council) funding. The training is primarily aimed at SENCos and SEMH professionals working in school and Early Years settings . Our approach is just as relevant for health, policing and care colleagues as well as parents so please register interest whatever your training and experience - just let me know your reasons for wanting to join us in the free text box.
We are also running a 'Why are we Waiting' school readiness project in Yeovil in collaboration with Early Years, Health Visiting services and Primary Care. Please click this link for details of our early Years work.
We are developing resources for parents and carers that are accessed on this page.
Click this link to enter our interactive site. All the training video clips are available on the homepage and there are links to Alpiri elearning modules as well as to our most recent powerpoints. Once you have registered with this site you will be able to access more resources. Those of you who train in more depth in Emotion Coaching may opt to register with the EHCAP Learning Community and download our latest training powerpoints plus the facilitator training pack (2019).
You may find some of the discussions we run in workshops make you feel emotional esecially when looking at the Adverse Childhood Experience (ACEs) data in the Resilience documentary and when we run an exercise where you look at an ACE questionnaire. If you feel you would like to access emotional support one of the key organisations to approach in Somerset is Talking Therapies - this is a project funded through the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) national fund and access is free for all of us registered with an NHS GP. Somerset IAPT offer mindfulness sessions as a way of managing stress and EMDR as a treatment for post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
