Therapeutic Teaching Course

Our signature course helps you help the children! Giving them the skills to take control back and not let their feelings hijack them!
Our CPD Certified Therapeutic Teaching course is a six-part, whole school course designed to help you embed an approach to behaviour that is trauma informed, attachment aware and based on neuroscience. Making a real tangible difference to every child’s mental health and life skills.
TPC Therapy CPD Certified Training

The Therapeutic teaching approach acknowledges that there is always a feeling behind every difficult behaviour a child displays, and that our role as adults is to help guide and teach children to understand this, rather than telling them off and punishing them for struggling. The course upskills everyone in school to support the child in understanding their own mental health and wellbeing. We take the focus away from trying to stop negative behaviour and on to what is going on behind that behaviour.

Our course offers a step-by-step approach to supporting children’s behaviour which is underpinned by science but delivered in a relatable, realistic way. It is perfect for embedding a whole school culture and approach to support children’s mental health, wellbeing, and behaviour and is delivered directly to everyone working at the school.

The Course Will Focus On:

Trauma, Stress and Adversity
Insecure Attachment
Behaviour Management
Emotional Intelligence
Mental Health and Wellbeing
Teacher Skillset
Whole School Strategies/ Incentives
Environments Indoor and Out
Creating an Emotionally Safe School

“After only three weeks I could give you hundreds of examples of the amazing, wonderful effect this is having on our children”

Course Modules

The training is made of six key modules that form the pillars of our Therapeutic teaching approach and helps you understand how trauma, stress and adversity impacts children in school and how you can adapt your approaches, policies, environment, responses and reactions to behaviour, to ensure everyone is working from a trauma-informed, attachment aware framework.

With a focus on supporting every child to become self-aware and emotionally intelligent and giving them the strategies to understand their own emotions and behaviour and giving them the skills to self-regulate and manage this for themselves. This course helps you help the children! Giving them the skills to take control back and not let their feelings hijack them! We specialise in closing the gap between theory and practice and helping you have the tools, strategies, and knowledge you need to begin making changes straight away.

“We went on to the therapeutic programme – this was mind-blowing, a real game changer for us!”

About the Course Creator

The course is written and delivered by Shahana Knight, an award-winning childhood trauma specialist who has a background in psychology, therapy and education and who has experienced her own childhood trauma. Shahana is the author of ‘The Therapeutic School Approach’ and writer for Head Teachers Update Magazine. Shahana and her work have appeared on BBC teach and BBC Newsround. Her focus is always on the practical things you can actually do to make a difference to the young people you support, and the outcomes of her courses directly impact every child.

This is a pre-recorded online series of modules that come with support documents – this is not in webinar form but is more like a ‘netflix’ experience complete with videos/ visuals to bring it all together throughout.

“I just wanted to say thank you so much! This has been the best training I have ever done and I am a SENCO, so I have done lot’s of training, some really good training, but this has been the most impactful!”
