This two-day conference brings together leading international and local experts to examine in detail how patterns of addictive, anxious or depressive behaviour can pass from generation to generation. It explores how the impact of trauma can be passed from one generation to the next and considers the contribution across the spectrum, from learned behaviours through vicarious andsecondary trauma to transmission at the genetic level. A great opportunity for learning and networking. From our Associates ‘Action Trauma (NI)’.

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

Cost: €70.00

Venue: Phoenix Park School, Dublin 8.

As practitioners we are told to self-care, to be resilient, as if there’s something wrong with us when we’re affected by our work. Secondary trauma should be seen in the context of the organisational systems it exists in. Doing this will improve the wellbeing of the workforce, so they can improve the wellbeing of the communities they work with.

Date: Thursday 15th November 2018

Time: 10am-4.30pm

Venue :La Mon Hotel & Country Club, 41 Gransha Road, Belfast.
