2020 National Conference: Beyond Trauma Informed – Strategies to create healing environments - Birmingham

Price: £248.40

Date: June 12, 2020

We are delighted to host Bryan Post, author of the ‘Great Behaviour Breakdown’, for our 2020 National Conference: “Beyond Trauma Informed – Strategies to Create Healing Environments”. The conference will be held in Birmingham on 12th June.

Bryan will focus on practical strategies to help parents and carers to create a ‘trauma responsive environment’ for children who have suffered early life adversity or developmental trauma. Many of the typical behavioural and relational difficulties these children struggle with will be addressed by Bryan, offering a range of realistic ‘love based’ responses, which you can try straight away to lessen family stress and improve family relationships.

After lunch (2-2.30pm), UK based Denise Golding and Zach Gomm will briefly talk about their work on the ‘Great Behaviour Breakdown’ parenting model here in the UK.

Availability: Spaces remaining.
