Brain-Based Approaches to Whole-Child Development from Infancy to Adolescence and Beyond

4.8 out of 5

Neuroscience is transforming our understanding of being human, from infancy through adolescence and into parenthood, leading to improved practice across all areas of child development and family support.  As the need for neuro-scientific knowledge amongst practitioners increases, its convergence with key approaches to attachment, trauma, and learning have seen watershed changes in how we understand and support optimal development, behaviour and social emotional wellbeing.

This dynamic new workshop from the best selling author of Hey Warrior, shows how modern practitioners can synthesise the latest (often complex) neurodevelopment research into practical brain based approaches to treatment, education and parenting/ carer support.

Children have an enormous capacity to influence the brain-building process in profound and enduring ways
