A Fresh Look at Supporting Adolescents

With Vivienne Batt

A fresh look at supporting Adolescents with a trauma background

This presentation describes the work I currently do with a diverse and amazing team of co-workers.

We use the latest research in neuroscience and the evidence of trauma informed education and care to walk the learning journey with a small group of secondary school students.

These students have disengaged with mainstream schooling, have alphabet diagnoses and come to us at a very low point. We use a complex array of trauma informed, educationally sound, animal assisted, strengths-based approaches to re-engage each student with their learning journey, all from a Christian worldview.

You’ll find out more about trauma informed learning, the use of horses in helping students get in touch with their emotions and regulate, the treasure of rapport-building with safe and trusted adults and more.

This story is evolving, as we continue to explore new approaches, so expect another presentation in the next couple of years!
