This session will help you to understand child development from a neurological perspective, particularly within the context of those who are experiencing distress, separation & loss.
The young brain develops & changes rapidly from birth throughout childhood & much of its development relies on the environment provided & how children experience the world as they grow & develop.
However, when these experiences present stress, trauma & grief, many negative changes can take place in the brain, affecting their ability to cope, social & emotional wellbeing, learning & engagement.
By understanding more about this ‘vulnerable brain’, we can help strengthen & support these children & young people by working with the brain’s natural ability to rewire itself & adapt.
Ultimately you will learn how to nurture their ability; not only to survive; but thrive in adverse circumstances.
