Wellbeing Mentor

In response to many schools now employing Wellbeing Mentors who will support the initial intervention around a child’s emotional wellbeing, we have devised a 6-hour training programme for mentors to be delivered in two 3-hour sessions in the school setting.

Each session is very interactive and allows attendees to explore issues particular to their school.

Areas covered in the programme include:

  • active listening
  • barriers to engaging with an adult
  • how to engage children non verbally
  • the ‘therapeutic’ space
  • basic psychological theory
  • how to work with children with particular presentations
  • how to keep yourself safe

There will also be the chance to explore attendees’ work with a child during a mini-supervision session.
