Bookings open for ‘Reconnecting with the heart of frontline practice’ seminar

Three Cork organisations Ag Eisteacht, Caidreamh Family & Practitioner Assessment & Therapeutic Services and SHEP (Social and Health Education Project) with shared values and a common interest in frontline practitioner care and development are holding a one-day, innovative seminar to open a conversation about the perception and realities of frontline practice

The event is the first of a series of collaborative initiatives by the group exploring focused ways of supporting frontline workers.

It is open to all frontline practitioners and managers working in health, education, social care and justice sector roles in public, private or community organisations.

The aim of the seminar is to create a safe space and time for frontline practitioners to gather together as a community to reflect on the values and sense of mission and purpose that drew them to their work in the first place and how they can reconnect with this and keep motivated and well.

The morning session will include a series of inspirational talks including a keynote speech by Dr Caroline Elton, Chartered Psychologist and author of ‘Also Human – The Inner Lives of Doctors.’

In the afternoon, there will be a choice of four experiential workshops

Parent-Child Attachment Play (PCAP) is a very innovative and empowering early help attachment programme for parents and their children from 3-15+. It can be delivered with groups, 1:1 or through a home-visiting model.  Parents and carers are often concerned about their children’s behaviour and that by adopting a playful attachment approach they will somehow lose control over their family life.  In fact, the opposite is true.  When the parent-child relationship is working, helpful child behaviour generally follows and family life becomes more manageable.

 This 10-step programme is based on the latest attachment research which shows that supporting the parent-child attachment relationship sets the scene for the best outcomes for children right into adulthood.

 PCAP involves sharing three skills with parents and carers through interactive workshop-style sessions;

1.  Play (and the creation of a shoebox or bag of toys/activities designed around the preferences of the child)

2.  Containment (managing time, environment, emotions and helping children to make helpful choices)

3.  Head, Heart and Hands (an attachment tool based on evidence-based Reflective Functioning

 Courses are targeted towards professionals working with children and families not parents.

It has been developed for use with children from very troubled backgrounds and assists practitioners in formulating intervention plans most likely to succeed. The first 4 days cover the normative insecure patterns of attachment followed by a break with the second 4 days of training covering the clinical examples of attachment, trauma and depression
