This course is specifically a ‘train the trainer’ course for Educational Psychologists who would like to deliver the REACH course in their area. Once EPs have attended the six modules of this REACH training course, all materials are then freely available to enable course delivery in their area. Six modules over six days: 3/8/21; 4/8/21; 10/8/21; 11/8/21; 31/8/21; 1/9/21
The REACH Course is an educational psychologist developed and led learning curriculum, equipping practitioners with the psychological knowledge and skills they require to embed effective trauma informed, resiliency enabling approaches in their schools and settings.
Delivered in six ‘bite-size’ modules, REACH teaches 100 different learning objectives relating to the key knowledge and skills needed to develop an awareness not only of adversity and trauma, but also of the approaches that are vital in supporting young people to do well, despite their risk factors.
In particular, the course explores the five ‘Roots of Resilience’ – and numerous associated research-based protective factors – that we can help vulnerable children to tap into, in order to maintain their strength and stability during adverse events, nourishing them from the inside out.
These protective factors are ‘positive childhood experiences’ (PCEs) that can mitigate the effects of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and foster the resilience of children affected by adversity. The course also teaches simple trauma informed techniques for addressing the often-hidden effects of trauma and toxic stress.
Because we know that stable and supportive relationships are the golden thread – or ‘ordinary magic’ (Masten, 2001) – running through research into what buffers us from risk, there is a strong emphasis on the importance of nurturing and attuned relationships for resilience in the REACH training course. The course also emphasises the importance of developing a strong sense of self.
