Thank you for signing up to work as a Mindful Emotion Coach and MACE Awareness Supervisor, Coach or Facilitator with the Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service.
You should have access to the latest Mindful Emotion Coaching and ACE Awareness (MACE) power-points and Facilitator Manual within the Wellness Coaches section of our Groupsite.
After each learning session I need you to come back to this form and let me know what you have been doing and how you feel. This is because we continuously update our training programme as we receive feedback.
WE NEED FEEDBACK FROM EVERY WORKSHOP YOU FACILITATE. PLEASE ASK LEARNERS TO COMPLETE OUR FEEDBACK FORM ON THEIR PHONES BEFORE THEY LEAVE
Facilitators move at differing paces through the phases of AWARENESS and APPLICATION into ADAPTATION of our resources. At your own pace, start to develop your own resources maintaining fidelity with scientific research (Shonkoff, Siegel, Gottman, Eagleman). The simplest way to do this is to reference www.mindfulemotioncoaching.co.uk . You MUST reference researchers in your slides and you MUST understand that you need copyright permission for images you use (in other words you cant just download images from the internet).
The programme will develop the following skills and capabilities such that the fundamental needs of children, young people and families are addressed:
understand the neuroscience of the effects of adversity (including abuse and neglect) in childhood on long term physical and mental health outcomes and integrate this understanding into safeguarding children, young people and families
build skills and capabilities in managing the effects of early adversity through Dan Siegel's Hand Model and John Gottman's Emotion Coaching
demonstrating the principles of person centred care
awareness of the importance of personal physical and mental wellbeing and incorporating compassionate self-care into your personal and professional life.
