what have previous attendees said about this training?

It helped me get a better awareness of how a pupil might respond in some situations, and why. It will definitely change our approach to some issues as a result.



I learnt a lot about influences of attachment on behaviour and understanding different attachment styles. Coming to the training helped me think about strategies to support pupils and how to inform parents & colleagues.
