Relationships, mental health and behaviour: Keeping language in mind

March 16 / 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


Morning keynote Speaker: Dr Val Brooks, Highly Specialist Speech and Language Therapist
Why is so hard to identify students with undiagnosed language and communication difficulties? This keynote session will explore complex developmental trauma and neurodevelopmental language disorders as a basis for understanding both the behaviours, and the needs, of children and young people.
There will be a carousel of workshops in the afternoon, with topics likely to include:

  • Using music as a therapeutic tool.
  • Increasing awareness of inclusive language to support LGBTQI+ students.
  • Mental Health First Aid (awareness session).
  • Using Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) principles to promote positive relationships in children who have experienced trauma and loss.
  • Strategies to support sensory processing needs.
  • Promoting positive behaviour and wellbeing in secondary schools.
  • Using play to promote positive relationships.
  • Strategies for supporting anxious students.
  • Key strategies for addressing self-harm.
