Crisis Handling

The Inclusion and Wellbeing Service have organised for training around Crisis Handling for school staff. This is provided by www.changeschp.org.uk and they are providing 2 cohorts early in the new year.  Please find attached information and a paragraph below about the training. This is in response to increasing instances of pupils presenting with high levels of emotional distress including suicidal thoughts and self-harm. It is hoped this training will give staff in schools who are supporting such children and young people with increased confidence in how to respond and the approaches best to take.
