  • POSTPONED: Four Generations in the Room: the Aims of Attachment-Based Therapy with Individual Adults

    Due to Covid-19 and Government advice, we have sadly postponed this training session. Those who have booked places will be contacted individually.

    20 March 2020, 9.30 – 4.30pm

    With Linda Cundy (ref: LCM20) £85

    The Salvation Army, Bayhall Road, Tunbridge Wells, TN2 4UT

    The aim of attachment-informed therapy is to help our clients develop more secure relationships – with their partners, families, colleagues, and with themselves. Becoming more resilient, less anxious, chaotic, or rigidly defended also has positive implications for their children. It is an inter-generational model.

    This training day outlines the features of secure attachment that therapy can promote, and will propose particular areas of focus when working with individuals who are anxiously preoccupied, avoidant, or chaotic. It will also draw on research indicating that people who “earn” security through psychotherapy have advantages, particularly as parents, over those who have not faced adversity and have taken their own security for granted.

  • Safeguarding, also with Prevent, CSE & FGM

    17th July, 9.30am-4.30pm

    With Esther Green (ref: SGJ20) £85

    The Salvation Army, Bayhall Road, Tunbridge Wells, TN2 4UT

    Whatever the role of your company or organisation we all have legal responsibilities when it comes to safeguarding children. This training course will give you and your staff team a practical overview of what you need to know should you have any concerns about a child’s well-being and safety in your day to day work. This interactive course is perfect for volunteers and employees who are new to their role or for more experienced staff who simply want to refresh and update their knowledge of safeguarding children. The morning sessions include reflections on current cases and practical examples, so that participants will gain knowledge and confidence in dealing with tricky situations and an increased understanding of their safeguarding responsibilities in the workplace. The afternoon sessions focus on safeguarding issues of the day, giving participants an important opportunity to talk about situations they currently face in their interactions with vulnerable children such as online safety, Child Sexual Exploitation, Radicalisation and Female Genital Mutilation.

    Esther is currently an Independent Social Worker and Fegans' Safeguarding Lead. Prior to this Esther was a Local Authority Children and Families Social Worker and Senior Practitioner and has extensive experience in child protection investigation and parenting risk assessment.

    In 2012 Esther co-founded Little Rascals Nurseries, which became very successful, with two large settings both awarded Outstanding by Ofsted. In this time Esther also obtained post graduate Early Years Professional Status.

    Esther has facilitated multi-agency safeguarding training across many agencies including education, early years and health services and in recent years Esther has also been offering consultancy and advice on safeguarding and child protection issues, alongside her role as an ISW.

After four training days with Fegans, I feel like I really know what I’m getting. They are really good days, with very strong teaching. Thank you.

Feedback from attendee, Fegans’ Training

An excellent mix of theory, practice, interaction, and real life examples which has led to me feeling well equipped to launch out and work in a child-led way. Also excellent and very detailed notes were provided.

Feedback from attendee, Fegans’ Training

The combination of theory and opportunity to experience role play and practice for me was very helpful. Open discussion within the group and time to process was also really helpful. There was plenty of time and it was not rushed.

Feedback from attendee, Fegans’ Training

The content was very comprehensive; there was an appreciation for, and a building on the skills I already have.
