CLA Designated Teacher Training: Emotion Coaching

Target audience:

This training is for Designated Teachers for Children Looked After (CLA) and staff who work with CLA within their school.

Outline of event:

The aim of this full day training is to explore how Emotion Coaching can be used to promote the educational achievement and emotional wellbeing of CLA. Emotion Coaching is an evidence-based, universal approach for supporting sustainable emotional health and wellbeing. It is based on the principle that nurturing and emotionally supportive relationships promote positive outcomes and resilience. Through Emotion Coaching, children and young people are supported to self-regulate their emotions and behaviour, improving competencies to manage difficult feelings.

The training will explore how Emotion Coaching can be used to create an ethos of positive learning behaviour and aid staff confidence to de-escalate situations when behaviour is challenging. The relational approach will provide an alternative to classic behaviour management strategies and we will explore how moments of heightened emotion/behaviour can be used to guide and teach children about more effective responses. Emotion Coaching is based on the work of John Gottman (1996) and has links with the Attachment Aware School Programme (Bath Spa University).

The training will be delivered by the Educational Psychology Service.

This training is from 09:00 to 15:30.
Cost: FREE. Please note that non-attendance will result in a charge of £40.
Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Venue: Bishop Burton College, York Road, Bishop Burton, Beverley, HU17 8QG. Parking spaces will be available at the college.
