KEYNOTE: Compassionate Connections

These slides were developed for a conference in Hampshire in Spring 2024.

Here’s the session overview:

Compassionate Connections: Next Level Listening

This practical talk is designed to inspire and empower practitioners committed to supporting young minds. Discover practical strategies to uncover the ‘why’ behind challenging behaviours like self-harm and absenteeism, and learn how to foster environments of safety, belonging, and pride. This session not only equips you with skills to deeply connect with children but also will also enhance your approach to nurturing wellbeing and resilience in both the children you support and yourself.

If you were there, I hope these are a helpful aide-memoire. If not, I hope they make enough sense without me to be useful. If you’d like to download them, you can do so via this page on slideshare.
