Tickets are selling fast for our annual conference this November – make sure you book your places soon!

This year, we are delighted that we will be joined by Denise Golding and Zach Gomm. Denise and Zach will present a workshop for parents and professionals, based on the ground-breaking parent training, The Great Behavior Breakdown by Bryan Post.

The conference is aimed at adopters, foster carers, parents, SENCOs and other professionals who work with and support children who present challenging behaviours. 

Adoptive and foster parents whose children have suffered abuse or trauma, or parents of children with ASD / ADHD, require specialist knowledge and skills in order to parent successfully and maintain their own and their children’s emotional and physical well-being. This parenting approach has helped even the most difficult of family situations find stability and healing.

This training programme acknowledges the importance of educating both parents and professionals to enhance parenting and support skills in order to meet children’s needs adequately.

Certified instructors, Denise Golding & Zach GommDenise and Zach will provide parents and professionals alike with strategies for multiple and complex behaviours including aggression, defiance, sexualized behaviours, self-harm, lack of eye contact and social skills. 

Amongst other things, this workshop will provide you with a simple ‘Stress Model’ to aid understanding of a child’s negative behaviour, and a ‘toolbox’ of strategies to use on a daily basis. These tools will enable you to understand the feelings underlying challenging behaviour, to reduce stress and fear, and to build a more positive relationship with children.

The conference will take place on Friday 24th November 2017, between 9.30am – 4.30pm, at The Ridgeway Centre, Wolverton Mill South, Milton Keynes MK12 5TH.

Tickets cost just £95, which includes all handouts, lunch and refreshments throughout the day.  To book your place on the annual conference, please visit the conference page, download the conference leaflet, complete the booking form and return it to us as directed.

We look forward to seeing you in November!
