Course Description

We are delighted that colleagues from Barnardo’s will lead this day of professional learning which is suitable for all classroom practitioners.  The day will be comprised of 3 sessions: 

Session 1 What Next After ACES?

With a growing awareness of the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) across Scotland, we will share and explore our learning around the ACE model, and how it informs trauma-informed approaches with children and young people.

Session 2 What is a Healthy Relationship?

Following on from the relational model explored in session 1 we will look at what constitutes ‘healthy’ when we think of children and young people’s relationships. This session will include introductory information around Child Sexual Abuse, Child Sexual Exploitation and Harmful Sexual Behaviours.

Session 3 Understanding and Supporting ASD

The final session of the day will look at current understanding of supporting non neuro-typical children and young people. As well as strategies to better support these youngsters individually, we will discuss the importance of environmental factors in creating a safe and inclusive space.


What We Do:

We help transform the lives of the most vulnerable children and young people in the UK.

We listen to them. We believe in them – no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through.

We protect, support and nurture the UK's most vulnerable children and young people

Our priorities are stronger families, safer childhoods and positive futures.

We build stronger families, safer childhoods and positive futures.

We also use our original research, based on the direct work we do, to:

influence the government on issues affecting children and young people 

raise public awareness of issues affecting children and young people
