A workshop with Barnardos Post Adoption Service
The purpose of this hour and a half long training is to explore key issues that arise for adopted –and fostered-children in the school environment, it is designed specifically for teachers and school support staff. It will give an insight into how early relational trauma and attachment affects brain development and why school can be challenging for adopted children. In addition to everyday challenges, early attachment issues can be triggered again for some adopted children as they mature and become more independent. Throughout this training we will explore strategies to support children in your classroom.
