Sensory Strategies to Build Resilience

Professional development workshop exploring neuro-nurturing to understand how sensory systems impact development.

Participants will learn strategies to facilitate sensory play and build resilience in the early years

Current research in neuroscience and on the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences has given more knowledge and information about how and what we experience in the early years has life time impact.  Sensory Play enables chldren to regulate their emotions, building resilience so they can not only cope with life’s adversities, but thrive. 

Who is it for?

Developing Cultures Of Love, Learning And Relationship:

Residential Care Revisited

Where:    University of Limerick, Limerick, Ireland

When:     09.30 – 17.00 1st July, 2019

How:       Keynote talks, interactive workshops, participant discussions

Context:

Outcomes for children in care in Ireland and the UK remain consistently poor despite decades of attempts to improve their trajectories. The charity, Compass CFS, utilises social pedagogy in exploring ways of looking after children and young people that truly nurtures their needs and potential in ways that resist the dominant discourses of reward and punishment that many services for children are based upon. Children in care are likely to have experienced trauma and abuse and their reactions to the world are frequently trauma based – behaviourist approaches can punish this trauma and, inadvertently cause more harm. The conference aims to showcase alternatives for working with children including trauma informed approaches and social pedagogical frameworks.

DES sanctioned Summer Course taking place on the 1st – 5th and 8th –  12th July 10am until 2pm daily  for Teachers & SNAs in the Phoenix Park. An exciting Summer Course (3 EPV days)  (CPD) that we are running in our Specialist School. We spend a lot of time looking at underlying causes & precipitating factors of children’s behaviours, with a view to better understanding them. We introduce the concept of ACES, childhood trauma & informed practice, crisis development & de-escalation. We do a lot of myth-busting about bold children & bold behaviour in order to  encourage participants to distance themselves from such terms.
Learn & practice new skills around de-escalation & conflict, setting limits & when to interrupt & redirect behaviours as they occur in your school…all in a supportive environment

Irish Attachment in Action are delighted to be facilitating the screening of ‘Resilience, the Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope’ in conjunction with our partners the Irish Foster Care Association who are hosting the events. The screening will be followed by a Q and A panel disccussion .

“Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the new documentary Resilience reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in paediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress—and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.” [KPJR Films]
