You may find some of the discussions make you feel emotional especially when looking at the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) data in the Resilience documentary and during the second workshop when we run an exercise where you look at an ACE questionnaire.

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.

Morning workshops are 9am to 1pm and the first workshop is followed by screening of Resilience over a BYO lunch. Afternoon workshops are 12-4pm with Resilience screened at 11 am.

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.
