Using Sand and Water Play to Help Children Tell Their Story

Venue TBC

Wednesday 7 th February 2024 9.30-12.30

The sensory play that sand and water can provide enables children to self-regulate through the tactile
experiences of shaping, pouring, burying, sinking, hiding, and digging. There is a grounding effect of sand and
water play in how it can create a space for the child to express themselves non-verbally. In this kind of play
children often subconsciously create a representation of their inner world and how they see themselves in that
world. They can use the meditative elements of sand and water to process and make sense of difficult feelings.
As an adult providing sensitive guidance through this play, you can be curious and show genuine interest in
what the child is trying to say.

The Imagination Journey – Using the principles of guided imagery, meditation and mindfulness to support children’s expression.

ONLINE EVENT

Wednesday 28 th February 2024 9.30-12.30
Delivered by Clare Sullivan

Some people find it challenging to verbalise how they are feeling and for many children they simply
don’t have the developed language skills to express their worries and muddles. Using the
imagination unlocks the power of metaphor in the same way that dreams help us unravel our daily
problems and make sense of them subconsciously.
This course provides a sensitive and appropriate introduction to activities that will soothe and
regulate the child whilst opening up opportunities for healing conversations.
This course will enable you to:
 Understand the key principles of guided imagery, meditation and mindfulness.
 Explore the impact of imagery, meditation and mindfulness.
 Understand when it would not be appropriate to use this strategy.
 Explore activities that can be used with children.

Managing the Impact of Disclosures on Your Wellbeing

Online

Wednesday 28 th February 2024 5-6pm

It is natural to feel worried and overwhelmed if a child tells you they are being harmed. You will want to create
an environment in which you can support the child/ young person to share their experiences and to receive and
report the information in a way that is both sensitive and accurate. You will want to reassure the child without
over promising, you will want to react appropriately and proportionately and record your notes accurately and
timely. All whilst remaining calm and measured. You have a duty of care and responsibility to the child but also
to yourself and how you take care of yourself afterwards needs to be an integral part of your safeguarding
process.

Understanding Vicarious Trauma and Compassion Fatigue

Wednesday 6 th March 2024 5-6pm

ONLINE

The most effective way to protect ourselves from the negative impact of stress is to educate
ourselves on the signs and symptoms that show and tell us that we are feeling ‘full’ and likely to
become overwhelmed. We often need reminding of how to make time to care for our own physical
and mental health and how to set emotional boundaries. Once we become more aware of when our
ability to cope is reducing, we can practice regulating strategies that help us to manage and remain
healthy.

Please note that this workshop is ONLINE using TEAMS. Joining instructions will be sent out via email

Being resilient can be challenging when your life hasn’t been geared around you developing
resources and knowing your strengths. In this workshop we will explore stories from nature where
animals and plants have built resilience and strength because of the obstacles they have faced, the
habitats they grow in, or how they take care of themselves. This is an experiential workshop where
you will explore this yourself through a number of exercises. The exercises will include breathing
techniques, led visualisations, art making and group sharing. General art making materials will be
needed.

Supervision Skills – identifying and managing ‘stuckness’,understanding strengths and spotting the gaps in knowledge and confidence

Wednesday 17 th April 2024 9.30-12.30

Venue TBC

At its core supervision is a collaborative process of learning and development, exploration and
curiosity that leads to enhanced practice. Both the supervisor and the supervisee have an essential
role to play in making positive progress and as always success is based on the quality of the
relationship. At times of challenge we all naturally retreat to what we know, where we feel
comfortable, this might be in the thinking, doing or analysis but wherever we are on our learning
journey we often need a third eye to help us move forward and enable effective change.

Abuse Related to Beliefs in Witchcraft

Trainer – Soraya Azam (Safeguarding Consultant)

Venue TBC

Thursday 18 th April 2024 1-4pm

This training event is delivered by Soraya Azam (Safeguarding Consultant) who has extensive
experience in exploitation, cultural safeguarding, and honour-based crimes. Soraya is a passionate
campaigner for the safety and wellbeing of her local community, and we are delighted to be extending
our training offer to include her expertise in this area.
Background: The word ‘witchcraft’ describes a diverse set of spiritual expressions, which often include various
forms of spellcasting, so-called black magic, and other practices, some of which may have been derived from
other religious traditions such as shamanism and paganism. A witch is defined as a woman who practices
witchcraft. The word ‘witch’ comes from the Old English term ‘bewitch’ which is commonly understood as the
act of casting a spell on another person to gain control over them (this could be for a variety of reasons). The
present-day use of ‘witch’ may, or may not, carry that connotation. Witchcraft may be practiced as an isolated
spiritual activity independent of a traditional religion, yet it may also be one aspect within a traditional religion
as well.
Course is designed For All practitioners who come into contact with children, young people or
parents.

Identifying transference and countertransference in working with children

ONLINE EVENT

Wednesday 24 th April 2024 5-6pm

In all our interactions there are feelings and emotions involved, some positive and some not so
helpful. Sometimes we might feel and express a strong emotion towards someone and not
understand why it has surfaced in a particular situation. Sometimes we might seem to elicit strong
emotions or reactions in others and wonder how or why this has happened. This course will help you
understand how relationship dynamics can be impacted by ‘your stuff and ‘their stuff’. The first step
in managing the impact is understanding why it happens and how it happens.

Supporting Beginnings, Transitions and Endings for Children

Wednesday 15 th May 2024 9.30-12.30

Venue TBC

The Hawaiian word ‘Aloha’ means hello as well as goodbye and as such captures the importance of
both. Some of us find new situations and meeting new people challenging and uncomfortable,
whilst some of us struggle with goodbyes; preferring to slip away unnoticed. Our responses to the
start and finish of life events are rooted in our attachment patterns and our early experiences of how
we are presented with change. Routine creates a sense of security and safety, but our lives present
us with the constant reminder that all things come to an end.

Voice Hearing –Awareness and Support

Thursday 23 rd May 9.30am-11am

Venue TBC

Hearing voices is often considered a sign of mental illness, but it can also be a source of personal and
spiritual growth. Some people who hear voices may experience them as meaningful messages from
a higher power, a guide, an ancestor, or a part of themselves. These voices may offer insight,
wisdom,
comfort, or challenge. They may also reflect the persons’ inner conflicts, fears, hopes, and desires.
Transpersonal psychology is a branch of psychology that explores the spiritual aspects of human
experience, such as altered states of consciousness, mystical experiences, and paranormal
phenomena.
Transpersonal psychology recognizes that hearing voices can be a transpersonal phenomenon, that
is,
a phenomenon that transcends the ordinary sense of self and connects the person to a larger reality.
Transpersonal psychology also acknowledges that hearing voices can be a transformational
phenomenon,
that is, a phenomenon that can lead to positive changes in the persons’ identity, values, beliefs, and
behaviour.
If this is something that sparks your curiosity, then please join me for a discussion on how unusual
difficult experiences
can lead to personal transformation.

Venue TBC

Images can evoke emotions, memories, thoughts, and ideas and can unlock story telling for children
who have found it difficult to express how they might be feeling. Choosing images to describe, group
or change through cutting and collage making can provide the basis for a child to make meaning of
muddles and worries. Images can be photos, pictures, or paintings, they can be abstract or concrete.
It is a creative medium for the child to express their thoughts.

Working Therapeutically with Metaphor

Wednesday 3 rd July 2024 9.30-12.30

Venue: TBC

Metaphor is one of the key forms of comparative description in poetry and prose and we use them
all the time in our figurative speech; as such they are a useful tool when working with children. Using
metaphor can provide an opportunity for children to talk about confusing and difficult thoughts and
feelings. Using metaphors to explore similarities and common ground in difficult experiences can
help children normalise their responses to the challenges they may be facing and help them feel less
isolated.
This course will enable you to:
 Identify when and where we use metaphor in everyday life.
 Explore the theory relating to how metaphor can help children process difficult feelings.
 Understand when and where metaphor might be useful for children.
 Explore how metaphor can be introduced through activities with children.
