About this course
The workshop will run 10am – 1:30pm with breaks.
Why take this course?
- This introductory course will help you to develop and practise new skills that will enable you to better support the young people you work with.
- The last few years have been especially hard for young people with the effects of the pandemic compounded by the cost-of-living crisis, all of which have had an impact on young people’s development.
- This course will help you better understand the mental health of the adolescents you work with and will give you the confidence to respond in a way that’s best for them.
- This online workshop is delivered via Zoom and is an interactive and collaborative experience. With two trainer consultants available in each workshop, we can effectively facilitate discussion and provide a safe learning space for you to feel empowered to make a difference for children and young people.
- The online environment allows for individual exploration of key dynamics encountered in the work with young people and the formulation of best practice within your role.
During the course we’ll:
- develop a shared understanding of mental health in the context of adolescence
- explore the developmental processes and changes in relationships that take place during adolescence
- identify ways of supporting young people to navigate the challenges they face
- consider how trusted adults can promote positive mental health and model ways to support wellbeing
After taking part in the course you can receive a digital certificate of attendance upon request.
