Child Trauma and Teaching the Child on the Trauma Continuum – with Betsy de Thierry
Betsy has recently released a new book: Teaching the Child on the Trauma Continuum. Bill McKitterick, the former director of social care Bristol says: “This excellent book explains the continuum of trauma clearly in all its complexity in succinct and straightforward terms, drawing on the latest thinking and research in neuroscience. It shows how teachers, while not specialist mental health professionals, can provide skilled and effective help within school and the classroom to children and young people for them to recover from trauma. It recognises the pressure on teachers and schools to meet national educational objectives which can all too easily ignore the particular history and personal needs of individual pupils. The knowledge and skills within this book will enable the busiest teachers to both recognise and to effectively respond to these particular needs, and of equal importance to develop their own skills in reflection and shared learning.”
All schools attending will receive a copy of this book.
Thanks to Ann Farrell for her support in organising this conference.View Document

Teacher First’ Previews for schools – Approaching Thunder
1940s British Prints and Drawings from The Hepworth Wakefield
Kirkby Gallery - Kirkby Centre, Norwich Way, Kirkby, Knowsley L32 8XY
Thursday 25 January 2018, 3.45 – 4.30pm
(immediately followed by the exhibition launch, 4.30 – 6.30pm)
Behind the Scenes Walk & Talk - An opportunity for teaching staff to see this exhibition before it opens to the public.
Kirkby Gallery is delighted to present Approaching Thunder, as the first gallery on its national tour.
This exhibition draws from The Hepworth Wakefield’s outstanding collection of 1940s British works on paper, revisiting a decade of anxiety, austerity and idealism that resonates strongly with our lives today. With materials strictly rationed and the art market in crisis, leading artists such as John Piper Graham Sutherland and Edward Bawden turned to the inexpensive medium of paper.
Although a substantial number of works in the show were produced under the patronage of Kenneth Clark’s War Artists Advisory Committee, these images are in marked contrast to the idealised state propaganda embodied in the art of Nazi Germany. Though government-regulated, the works exhibited here convey individual and subjective experience, exploring ordinary lives under extraordinary shared circumstances. Figures are lost in thought or absorbed in their labours; intricately described landscapes reveal devastation but also the lingering vitality of the natural world.
This event will allow teachers to see behind the scenes and the educational space designed for class/group visits. It is a great opportunity to view what’s on offer for schools and find out how to book a free place for your school group to visit the exhibition.

3 day Primary Emotional First Aid Course for school based staff.
Please see below the three sets of dates for the programme.
The course will commence at 9.00am and finish at 4.00pm on the following dates:
• Cohort One – 30th November – Eastcroft Park ; 7th December & 14th December – Holiday Inn Express
• Cohort Two - 18th, 25th Jan & 1st Feb 2018 - all at Holiday Inn Express
• Cohort Three - 1st, 8th & 15th March 2018 - all at Holiday Inn Express
The aim of this programme is to engage and support school based staff, and other people who work with children and young people, to enable them to identify early signs of emotional distress and respond in a more empathic and supportive way to improve outcomes for our children and young people. Increasing the skills in the workforce will ultimately enable children and young people to take more control of their own emotional and mental wellbeing, build their resilience and provide them with a range of self-help coping skills/strategies. This can make a big difference to young people who may be experiencing difficulties in life such as, anxiety, stress, depression or other mental health difficulties, self-harming, risky behaviour, or overcoming bullying.
