Self-Harm and Suicidal Behaviours in Children and Young People (Layered Learning Package)

Really thought provoking, I thought I had a good understanding of self-harm but the video made me look at other avenues.

Programme Officer, Primary, Secondary and Further Education including SEN

Was really good and really helpful.

High intensity CBT therapist, Secondary School

Very informative and a great working group.

Mental health practitioner, Primary School

Really valuable to share ideas in breakout rooms. Thank you.

Speech and Language therapist, Early Years to Further Education

Really enjoyable but as always, wish we could have spent longer with colleagues in break out room.

Head of Learning Support, Year 1 to 13 in full boarding school

Really enjoyed the reflective practice and having the space to have discussions. Thank you.

Senior Practitioner MHST, All Through School

Really valued the reflective practice and practical sessions in providing space to reflect and share experiences and ideas. Part A was a useful prompt to revisit prior knowledge and refresh as well as challenging assumptions.

Development Worker, Youth work

The resources provided are so helpful. Carly and Lucy are great facilitators and very knowledgeable. I would have liked a little more info on safety plans/safeguarding around this client group.

Psychotherapist, Private Practice

Mind, Body and Mental Health (Layered Learning Package)

Fantastic training. Very inspiring and supportive facilitators. Amazing how many resources they have shared and the passion they have for the work they do. I’m so inspired by this layered training package that I am encouraged to continue with further training with Barnardo's Education Community as I find the balance between sharing knowledge and theory with personal and professional development really worked for me. Thank you.

Mental health worker, Further Education

This was the best training I have been on in a while. I particularly benefited from linking the theory to practice and discussion around trauma informed practice. The facilitators encouraged reflections and contributions which made it helpful to learn from others perspectives. Thank you for providing this valuable training and for balancing theoretical knowledge with practical experience.

Mental Health Counsellor, Secondary School

I am really grateful for these courses being available to me. I am gaining insight and better reflective practice all the time as a result. Thank you!

Teacher and SEMH Lead, SpLD school, KS2 - KS4

The facilitators on this training were experts at the topics of the presentation at the same time they had exceptional awareness of the nature of the work we do and how to support us in our role. The encouragement was second to none. Thank you very much for this session from the layered package. My reflective practice has deepened already as a result of your support on this training.
