Access Our Online Workshops Today

We are delighted to offer a series of 12 online workshops with the aim of helping you to understand more about a young person’s brain and the psychology behind the behaviour, in bite-sized, accessible chunks. The workshops are delivered by Specialist Child Clinical Psychologists and will help you to develop strategies and approaches to manage behaviours, whilst promoting positive emotional wellbeing and overall better mental health outcomes for children and young people.

Specifically, Beyond Psychology are known for their work with children who have histories of developmental trauma and attachment difficulties, and they have a particular interest in supporting children and young people in care and those who have been adopted.

The workshops are aimed to support parents of adopted children, foster carers, as well professionals (in schools, medical or social care settings) working with children with experiences of early life trauma.

Recent testimonial (December 2023): We have been using the Beyond Psychology Academy in our service and it has been such a great addition to the training offer for staff. Whilst the content is online, we have chosen to come together in small groups to enable and guide conversations about the learning and explore how being a trauma informed practitioner impacts our personal and professional selves. This has been received so well by staff who really appreciate the bite size modules followed by reflective discussion. The training has been a great boost for staff learning as well as morale and wellbeing and the relaxed and informal approach to the content means it is accessible for all.

The videos cover concepts to understand the neuroscience of the brain, and the impact and disruptions early life trauma cause to the social emotional and cognitive functioning of young people.
