Postponed - Supporting Self-Regulation and Wellbeing in the Early Years

Outline

New Brain Science is informing Practice across social, health and education about how Self-Regulation can support and improve well-being for children & their families. In this course we shall explore how an infant’s ability to self -soothe and self-regulate is pretty much learnt from their primary care givers and the people around them. We go onto to consider how supporting parents and carers to teach their children positive self-regulation and de-escalation techniques and modelling these techniques themselves is fundamental to a child’s global healthy development including their emotional and physical wellbeing. During the training we shall also address how these new skills of self-regulation and self -care are not only fundamental to the children and families we work with but also for ourselves with the demands and complexities our work increasingly brings us.

Description

The course introduces participants to the reasons why supporting and practising Self-Regulation is not only empowering to the child and parent /carer but can be a fundamental tool in supporting the overall wellbeing and development of positive attachments in the growing child and family.

The training details how a baby can only learn positive ways to regulate themselves when within safe and responsive relationships and looks at how you can support these crucial skills and relationships developing in your work with children and families. We shall be learning fundamental and useful concepts of Self- Regulation such as ‘Serve and Return’, ‘Window of Tolerance’ and ‘Zones of Regulation’, ‘Brain Stem Calmers’ etc and within these learn and practice new and easy to use Early Year’s strategies that can help ‘notice, name & tame’ intense emotions and behaviours.

The training will look at the part ‘Active Listening’ and Attuning has to play in Self-Regulation and its impact on all of our work ranging from with the child, supporting the parent/carer with their parenting skills and the support of our self and our work colleagues on a daily basis. We shall also consider how the development of our own Self-Awareness can be used to deepen our understanding of the child or family member and look at ways we can do this in our teams through reflective supervision support and case discussion.

With statistics showing an increase of mental health, complexity and compassion fatigue surrounding Children and Family Work we will explore how we can look after our self and each other by using some of the skills we share with families on ourselves and our teams. We will practise evidenced ways of Self-Care and Self-Regulation that you can use on a day to day basis such as Mindfulness and ‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’ and consider ways your service can blend such ideas into a Whole-Service approach in shaping their Emotional Wellbeing Strategy for the team.
