Here at FCA Scotland we believe training is a vital. That’s why we provide our staff and foster carers with ongoing training and development to help develop skills and gain knowledge.
As part of our staff development our therapist recently attended the More Than My Trauma Conference via a webinar featuring Dr Bruce Perry. Dr Perry is recognised across the world as a leading expert on trauma and supporting recovery. The webinar was an opportunity to bring everyone with an understanding of adversity together to explore how we promote and support recovery from trauma.
Our therapist attended the session on ‘developing a trauma-informed approach to closing the poverty-related attainment gap – from awareness to transformation of service delivery’.
In this webinar, members of the service shared their readiness for learning approach, which incorporated the Neurosequential Model in Education developed by Dr Bruce Perry. They described how this work has influenced recovery planning for schools following the COVID-19 closures, including initial findings from an authority-wide mental health and wellbeing study.
They also shared how the structure provided by the model has been taken beyond the classroom to develop services that are driven by equity and which are consistent with a neurosequential approach to development with respect to adults and children.
Our therapist said “it was great to hear Clacks Ed Psych Whitney Barrett sharing her team experience using neurosequential approach within their staff team first…impressive reduction in sick leave, increase in staff well-being and productivity, creative ways to engage children, families and schools”. Our therapist found the session really valuable.
