Support the Wellbeing and Resilience of Children & Young People training

In this course we will look at how and why it is important for children and young people to develop resilience. We will see what this looks like and how it impacts on wellbeing, self-esteem, as well as their social and emotional identity.

The training will look at how our approach as practitioners can help support a child or young person to achieve positive outcomes.

We will also look at behaviours which may challenge us, what these may indicate and what we may need to do to address them.
