A new NAHT course that explores the mental health issues affecting children and young people was launched to more than 250 delegates earlier in March, as the association held its largest ever special schools and alternative provision conference in Kenilworth.
Suspicious, scared and sad: supporting pupils with mental health needs has been developed by renowned SEND experts Professor Barry Carpenter OBE and Dr Rona Tutt OBE and will be held on 23 June 2015 in Birmingham.
The course provides an opportunity for you to learn more about what is meant by mental health, why it is important to understand what neuroscientists are discovering and what it tells us about how to help children and young people with mental health needs to engage with learning.
The course will combine informing you about the importance of mental health issues with practical ways of supporting affected pupils. Some of the sessions will be interactive and you will be asked to bring your own portable IT devices so you can explore online materials. There will be an opportunity to discuss case studies and to put forward examples of pupils who are particularly challenging and unable to engage with learning.
With limited places this course is expected to sell out very quickly, so to book your place now simply visit the course booking page.
