Supporting Children with Complex Needs
This workshop will unpack some of the issues around working with children who are experiencing complex needs, including anxiety, trauma and challenging behaviours. It will also unpack some of the interplay between the child, parents and siblings, and provide participants an overview of brain development and practical strategies. The workshop will also provide participants an opportunity to reflect on their values and ways that they may help or hinder their clients.
This face-to-face workshop will be interactive and participants are asked to come with particular examples in mind, where possible.
- Increased confidence in skills in understanding the biological and social constructs of children’s complex needs;
- Increased ability to engage parents effectively, and
- Increased understanding of appropriate referral pathways.
