|Description||This one day workshop is designed to help participants to examine and understand the issues that arise in schools as a result of the separation, loss and trauma experienced by pupils who have been adopted, are ‘looked after’, those pupils whose parents have separated or are divorced, and those pupils who have experienced the loss of a parent. Participants will look at ways in which social and emotional difficulties may be the underlying cause of behavioural problems, which in turn can lead to learning difficulties. Participants will gain an understanding of the specific educational and emotional needs of vulnerable pupils in relation to attachment, trauma, separation and loss. Participants will identify ways in which these issues may be addressed. The course is aimed at staff within an educational setting who have responsibility for, or contact with, children who have suffered early childhood trauma and/or loss such as children whose parents have separated or adopted or looked-after children. The course is appropriate for Headteachers, Senior Leaders, SENCO’s, teachers, support staff and governors in educational establishments, including those from Virtual Schools.|
