Gwynedd - Baby, Child and Teenage Brain Development
We have delivered training sessions to Gwynedd both face to face and on a virtual basis to facilitate the changing environment and rules for group gatherings.
The full days training included understanding of key milestones in brain development and impact on long term positive outcomes.
We looked at self-regulation and trauma responses and how these strategies can be included in practice to support the worker relationship and co regulating.
The group considered case examples and opportunities in their own practice to explore development, be curious about assessments and adapt strategies for intervention.
- Key understanding of baby, child and teenage brain development
- Understand the impact of poverty, neglect and poor parenting on the developing brain.
- Understanding the impact on practice and be able to compile effective interventions based on child/teenage developmental needs.
