We want all children to go through positive experiences that enable to thrive, feel safe and supported. Young people are constantly learning from their parents and the environments around them. When young people experience adverse childhood experiences it can have a damaging impact on their development, sense of wellbeing and how they form attachments with those around them.
This course explores adverse childhood experiences such as divorce and the bereavement this causes for young people. We look at the impact of living between parents and family members, what is means for a child’s learning and development when schools and friends changing. We will also explore the different roles of social care and the various levels of support young people and families can receive.
We will share lived experiences and theories about parenting styles, exploring different examples that include discussions about the impact of abuse, poverty and neglect. We will look at attachment styles, how they form and what you can do to help young people build trusting relationships with you. Finally, you’ll understand the different types of abuse, how to spot it and what to do to keep a child safe.
