    We all have responsibilities when it comes to safeguarding children, particularly in these incredibly challenging times.

    The training will include an update on safeguarding & child protection legislation and guidance, as well as reflection on possible current case scenarios and practical examples. The aim is for this training to give all participants an increased understanding of their safeguarding responsibilities in the workplace as well as highlighting some useful tools and resources.

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

    13th November 2020, 9.30-12.30pm
    27th November 2020, 9.30-12.30pm

    With Linda Cundy (ref: LCM20) £69 (for both sessions)

    Via Zoom

    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 will 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.

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.
