Join Colin Lutman who will provide an introduction on ways to make sense of children’s often confusing behaviour.

Are you sometimes left confused by children’s behaviour? Does it feel that sometimes no matter what you do nothing seems to help?

This training is designed to provide an introduction on ways to make sense of children’s often confusing behaviour. The aim of this 90-minute session is to understand and think about what children and young people’s behaviour might be communicating.

The session will provide an opportunity for ECTs to put theory into practice; make use of their own experiences working alongside children. The session draws upon experience from within the Mulberry Bush School which works with children who have experienced severe complex trauma and promotes a reflective culture when working alongside behaviour that challenges us.

This event is suitable for ECTs, RQTs, returners to teaching, teachers who are new to this area or teachers who would like a refresher.

About the facilitator

Colin Lutman is an experienced residential therapeutic care worker and a qualified psychodynamic counsellor currently working in private practice. He worked at the Mulberry Bush School for 12 years before leaving to take up his current role as a counsellor. He recently re-joined the Mulberry Bush Organisation as part of the Outreach Team’s maternity cover. Colin has taken part in university led research projects that led to the formation of the current Mulberry Bush Outreach Team.

Colin’s current responsibilities are to assist partner organisations to understand children’s behaviours in relation to attachment theory, behaviour as communication and understanding trauma through neuroscience. He is particularly interested in promoting self-understanding through reflective practice, and supporting groups and individuals to reflect on their emotions as a way of understanding children’s behaviours.
