Course Overview: 

“Born to Love and Be Loved” is a comprehensive and CPD-accredited training session designed to equip participants with the knowledge, skills, and communication techniques that are necessary to create a safe and nurturing environment for young people. This session focuses on promoting healthy attachment, helping young people regulate their emotions, and building meaningful relationships that offer effective support. 

Participants will explore key principles of attachment and gain insights into how to cultivate stronger connections with young people. By understanding attachment theory, participants will learn strategies for building trust, fostering secure relationships, and providing a supportive framework for young people's emotional well-being. 

One crucial aspect of this session is understanding the survival response, which examines how young people react to threatening situations. Participants will explore the flight, fight, freeze, or flop responses and develop a toolkit of techniques to appropriately respond to each survival response, ensuring that young people feel understood, safe, and supported. 

The session also delves into parenting styles and their influence on a young person's development. Participants will examine the impact of different parenting approaches, identify effective strategies for promoting positive parenting, and explore how nurturing relationships can positively shape a young person's emotional and behavioural growth. 

Furthermore, the session addresses the profound impact of domestic violence and child abuse on young people. Participants will gain insights into how trauma can shape a young person's behaviour and develop an understanding of trauma-informed approaches to support their healing and growth.
