This training takes the form of 6 X 1.5 hour sessions for groups between 8-12. Nick is available to deliver this training in person (at a venue agreed by the education setting) or online.
Week 1: ‘How does Nick know?’
Nick welcomes the parents and discusses his approach, brought together by his 15 years of working with parents and professionals in education settings. Nick outlines the plan for the weeks ahead and the parents also get the opportunity to talk about what brings them to the course.
Week 2: ‘What’s the Story?’
This session highlights the importance of the child’s ‘internal narrative’ – the story that governs everything they say and do. Expanding on how a child’s narrative comes to be, Nick begins to elaborate on how and why a child displays their lack of resilience through behaviour. Understanding of the internal narrative is critical to any positive change.
Week 3: ‘Superpowers’
Parents will learn how to raise their child’s awareness of their very own ‘superpowers’. Nick gives specific and accessible strategies for parents to use in order to lay the foundations of a positive internal narrative for their child
Week 4: ‘Challenge becomes opportunity’
Nick talks in detail about how to use a specific language technique to positively challenge negative behaviour and build resilience at the same time. This session also covers the most effective responses to children presenting with any worrying emotions.
Week 5: ‘State changers’
Having concentrated on strategies to use with children, Nick now gives the parents ideas to help them stay positive and well. The suggestions made throughout the course will only work if a parent is feeling confident and practices ‘self-care’, Nick has always believed ‘if the parent is ok, so the child will be too’.
Week 6: ‘Completion’
This final session is an opportunity to check in on how the parents are finding implementing the strategies learnt on the course. Nick can do some troubleshooting should any of the parents be finding challenges to putting his approach into practice. The final session is also an opportunity for parents to air any queries that they feel have not been covered during the course.
