KCASS November training.

We’re thrilled to announce further training sessions for kinship carers!

Thanks to our collaboration with Children’s Health Scotland, they will be covering two popular and relevant training topics for kinship carers in November.

The first topic is ‘Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing for Children in Kinship Care’.   This training will be in two parts on Tuesday 9th November 10 am – 2pm and Tuesday 16th November again from 10am – 2pm. Please make sure you are available on both days before signing up. Session 1 will focus on the connection between childhood adversity and brain development and behaviours which result from that. Session 2 will explore ways to manage children’s mental health needs and assist their recovery.

The second topic is ‘Loss and Change for Children in Kinship Care’. This session will run on Monday 22nd November from 10am – 2pm. Loss and change are a part of life that we adapt to as we grow older. This training will explain how loss and change can differ for children and young people in Kinship Care – whose lives may have been subject to much change. How might their experiences impact on their sense of emotional well-being? And how can Kinship Carers best support the child, themselves and their families to manage the feelings which flow from change and loss?
