About the Children and Young People Adverse Childhood Experiences Recovery Toolkit Programme

Rock Pool’s Recovery Toolkit programmes use a trauma-informed psycho educational model. We facilitate a safe space to ensure learning and promote collaboration. Our training is designed to be strengths based and skills building. We believe that by giving individuals knowledge we enable them to better understand and deal with their previous experiences. Programme participants are given practical strategies to help them thrive in their daily lives by developing resilience, increasing hope and enabling recovery.

The Children and Young People Adverse Childhood Experiences Recovery Toolkit is an 8 week programme that uses a combination of creative activities and group working to develop young people’s resilience and give them the opportunity to experience the healing of relational support. It provides information and education that enables children and young people to cope with the adversity they have experienced, (and may do so in the future). The programme is suitable for individuals between the ages of 8-16 years and can be run in mixed or single gender groups.

The Children and Young People Adverse Childhood Experiences Recovery Toolkit is written as a complement to the Adult Adverse Childhood Experiences Recovery Toolkit. It is informed by many of the same therapeutic models and, where possible, is to be run concurrently with the Adult Adverse Childhood Experiences Recovery Toolkit.

Aims

  • To help children and young people understand and, therefore, recognise that their emotions and behaviour have arisen because something has ‘happened to them’
  • That they have the ability to emotionally regulate

“The training was absolutely fantastic and very well received by everyone. I cannot speak highly enough of the facilitation from Chris and also the fantastic toolkit that you have developed.”

Carol Beddow, Assistant Team Manager, Family Support Service, Hampshire County Council

This 2 day training course will provide delegates with a comprehensive manual which includes guidance for facilitators, weekly session plans, all handout and materials to run the programme.  Delegates also receive a memory stick with all the programme handouts included. The price of this training course is £500 plus VAT. This includes lunch and refreshments throughout the training days. There is no need to have any previous group work experience to attend this course and run the programme.

There are conditions attached to delivering the Children and Young People Adverse Childhood Experiences Recovery Toolkit programme, as highlighted below.

Following the training, the newly trained facilitator will be responsible for ensuring participants of their facilitated Children and Young People Adverse Childhood Experiences Recovery Toolkit complete anonymised feedback forms about their delivery and the Toolkit programme and return them to Rock Pool. It will be standard practice for the facilitator to return an anonymised data return form to Rock Pool every time the Children and Young People Adverse Childhood Experiences Recovery Toolkit programme is completed. This will then enable us to put some measurements in place and we will be able to share the outcomes with all organisations who run the programme.
