SEBDA National Conference at Truro College – 25th June 2015

SEBDA NATIONAL CONFERENCE AT TRURO COLLEGE: ATTACHMENT AWARE SCHOOLS

THURSDAY 25 JUNE 2015

Truro and Penwith College will be hosting an Attachment Awareness Conference, in association with SEBDA (www.sebda.org), on Thursday 25th June 2015.

The conference will include keynote presentations from two influential academics and authors in the field of attachment theory in schools. Dr Janet Rose is a Principal Lecturer and Programme Leader at Bath Spa University and has led research into the development of Emotion Coaching as a means of supporting children and young people with attachment difficulties. In 2006 Dr Heather Geddes published the influential ‘Attachment in the Classroom’ in which she highlighted the need for differentiation in our teaching and support approaches, depending on the specific attachment needs of the child.

During the course of the conference, Dr Rose will provide an overview of attachment theory and the current links with neuro-scientific research before elaborating on the key features of the Attachment Awareness in Schools Project. Throughout the conference, Dr Rose will be ably supported by co-presenter and Virtual School Head teacher for Bath and Somerset, Mike Gorman. Together they will lead an introductory session on Emotion Coaching as a workshop option in the afternoon

In the afternoon, delegates will have the option of attending the Emotion Coaching workshop led by Janet Rose and Mike Gorman or an introduction to Nurture Group Theory and Practice, led by Angi Franklin of Nurture Group Network (www.nurturegroups.org).

Dr David Colley, a Lecturer in Education at Truro College and a National Council member of SEBDA, is looking forward to the event:

“We know that the social, emotional and attachment needs of our children in schools must be better understood if we are to tackle the rise in mental health difficulties both locally and nationally. By bringing Janet, Heather and Nurture Group Network to Truro College in Cornwall on 25 June 2015, SEBDA is driving this agenda forward. Delegates can expect to leave the Conference with knowledge, understanding and a range of practical strategies to support children in schools with immediate effect.”

Delegate prices for this one day event (9am-3pm) are

£55 concessions; £65 SEBDA Members; £75 Non-members.
