Tricky transitions: coping with change at school - via Zoom

Description:

For adopted and permanently placed children, transitions can be a trigger and can significantly impact on anxieties and difficulties. This has very possibly had more significant dimensions in this unprecedented school year due to the Pandemic. This training aims to develop your understanding of the specific impact that transitions can have on permanently placed children and learn about strategies that can support children. It will include “good hello’s”: working to get it right from the start, and “good goodbyes”: helping children leave their previous school or setting. It will also include addressing the possible heightened sensitivities to transitions due to recent pandemic and the effect this has had on children’s life at school.

 

Who should attend

Adoptive parents and other permanent carers
Teachers, social workers and other professionals working with children
