Other Sessions

We will be offering a wide range of courses / training sessions based on supporting a Whole School, trauma informed and relational Approach to wellbeing. New for 2022 we will be offering some face to face courses / webinars and other online training as well on demand sessions via the refreshed, new look, Cornwall Wellbeing Hub. Look for training on:

Protective Behaviours - ‘safety’ is at the heart of a WSA -  creating a physical and emotional safe space for all, where connection and relationships can flourish, and all children and young people feel they belong. The PB process explores how an individual can keep themselves safe and what, if they are not feeling safe, they can do about it”.

The BoingBoing Resilience Approach

The fabulous Lemonade Project  - individual / small group support for young people struggling with their wellbeing
