Brain Development

This ½ day seminar builds on the information in the 2 Day Foundation Training. It covers antenatal brain development and adolescent brain development. It includes a quick recap of the Solihull Approach model. It can be used as a stand alone seminar, but provides most value as a follow up to the 2 Day Foundation training to deepen knowledge and to keep moving theory into practice. Solihull Approach trained practitioners are likely to get the most out of the seminar, but other practitioners can attend.

You can run this seminar in your local area. If you want to observe the seminar before running it yourself, you can ask us to run it for you in your local area or you can attend the seminar in Solihull.

This seminar is designed to consolidate learning from the 2 Day Foundation, but will provide the best value as part of a theory into practice strategy that includes work discussion time, the Refresher Day and the seminars on attachment and trauma.
