From Fear to Freedom
Do you work with young people? Maybe you’re a carer or parent to a young person with challenging behaviour? Are you someone who wants to help young people in crisis? If you have contact with young people regularly then the From Fear To Freedom workshop is the perfect workshop for you to build your knowledge and skills.
From Fear To Freedom is a 2 day workshop that focuses on techniques and skills that allow young people to be able to manage change effectively and how it changes their behaviours. When interacting with young people who have experienced trauma, abuse or developmental delay there is a need for different approaches to enable positive growth to take place. This can be opening up more options to them, building their identity or supporting them in forging their own path to a brighter future. To enable them to get to this space of clarity there are tools and techniques we have picked up and changed to get results in different environments. On the From Fear To Freedom workshop we will be identifying how to tell where a young person is stuck in their thinking and how we can help them become unstuck.
What we will be covering:
On the first day we will be tapping into how the mind of a young person develops and the impact that trauma can have on the development of the brain. Once we look into the mechanics behind how the brain develops we will be speaking about how the mind orders and files all of our experiences. The afternoon of day 1 focuses on how we can build rapport at a fundamental level with anyone and become aware of what minute changes in someone’s demeanour means.
Day 2 is where we look at specific techniques that we have used to get powerful results with young people. We teach both the unaltered version of the technique and the tweaks we have made to create a resource that really gets through. In the afternoon we invite you to bring your own experiences and case studies to the trainers and delegates. We will be showing you how the skills over the last two days can be used in real life scenarios to produce results. Maybe it’s an interaction where you felt there was something that wasn’t quite being said. It could be a time where a young person changed in an instant and you didn’t know what else you could have done. How about a conversation that you had that you weren’t sure how to help them? Whatever it is, this is your opportunity to see how these skills can be used practically. We’ll also be giving you some of our experiences to apply your new knowledge to and consolidate your learnings.
