Session Title:

Teaching children who have experienced trauma and neglect

Abstract/Brief Summary:

This workshop will introduce the difficulties experienced by pupils who have experiences of neglect and trauma. We will explain who these children might be in your classrooms, for example those with a social worker, and those looked after by the local authority. We will discuss the prevalence and impact of these adverse experiences on pupils in schools, and share findings from a national research programme exploring the impact of staff training in attachment and trauma awareness in schools.
