We believe we have important learning from Pause Practices and the women we support. We offer bespoke 3 hour or 1 day training sessions to other organisations working with people with complex needs. We are also particularly interested in working with providers of social work qualifications, who are preparing the next generation of social workers.
We currently offer training sessions on the following topics:
This course will support participants to understand what it means to work in a relationship-based way when providing support to people with complex needs. it will provide insight into how this approach can be applied to practice, in line with Social Work England’s professional standards.
Relationships with children
Focusing on the perspective of birth mothers, this course will look at how to make contact between birth parents and their children as meaningful as possible. This course is aimed at any professional working in the ‘Looked After Children’ sector.
Maternal mental health
This course will focus on the aftermath of care proceedings and the removal of a child, focusing on the trauma involved and the impact it has on women’s mental health. It will look at how professionals can best adapt their services to meet the needs of this marginalised community.
Working with women in care proceedings
This course is aimed at professionals working with adults who are involved in Public Law care proceedings. It is designed for professionals who are not children or family social workers, and would benefit from better understanding the overall processes of care proceedings, as well as learning how to best support the adults they are working with.
These training sessions are offered on a case-by-case basis and can be tailored to your specific profession. If you would be interested in Pause delivering a training session at your organisation, please enquire below.
