Group Interventions and Workshops

Self-Soothe Group

‘Self-Soothe’ is for parents and carers of children age under 13 years, who have a history of developmental trauma and consequently struggle with relationships and emotional regulation.  The ‘Self Soothe’ program is based on principles taken from attachment theory, neuropsychology, systemic psychotherapy and spirituality (Smith, 2004). The training provides a framework to understanding the behaviour of children, whilst providing and practicing techniques and skills to deal stress children with trauma may bring.

Next Course due to start in May

Theraplay Directed Group for Young People

6 week group intervention for young people over 11 years of age, who have a history of developmental trauma and consequently struggle with difficulties in attachment relationships and emotional regulation.

This group uses non-verbal, playful activities to help a young person develop positive social interactions, experience nurture, and engage in activities to enhance their feelings of self-worth.

Next Group due to start in June

Take Control Course

This group is ideal to run in schools and colleges. It is run over six one-hour sessions. The course introduces common principles that can help people to become ‘unstuck’. Research shows that it is feeling out  of control can lead to a host of difficulties, such as anxiety, anger, OCD, eating disorders, self-harm and depression to name but a few.

This course helps children and adults reclaim a sense control of their lives and therefore improve their mental health. The principles and techniques learned on the course apply to a wide variety of mental health difficulties, whatever their origin. The course helps adults and children alike understand identify their goals, solve problems, be mindful and feel more in control of their lives. The course has been evaluated in an adult primary care service where its outcomes were comparable with face-to-face psychological interventions.

Nurture-Psychology have worked with young people to adapt the course and they have creatively helped us make the course ‘youth friendly’. We run this course for adults and children over 11 years old. Please contact us if you would like more details.
