We all move at differing paces through the phases of AWARENESS, ACCEPTANCE 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). In addition You Tube videos need to be streamed rather than downloaded.
When Shoba Manro Holly (social worker) and I - Sarah Temple- first started to put this approach together (2010) we based our thinking on Professor Eileen Munro's Review of Child Protection, the anticipated changes to Working Together statutory guidelines and the SCIE (Social Care Institute of Excellence) document Think Child, Think Parent, Think Family.
The Theory of Change used to embed safeguarding as a golden thread.
The programme has since developed to focus on 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, John Gottman's Emotion Coaching and Mindful Exercises
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.
