Father's Training (EVENT FULL)

Starts: Friday 25 June 2021 - 09:30 - 12:30
Venue : Virtual CPD Session, Digital Classroom, Virtual CPD Session map
Who is this event for
This course is open to all Camden staff and voluntary sector.

What does this event cover
Dads matter—a lot. The relationship between father and child has a deep impact on children’s healthy development in all domains: language, thinking, physical, and social–emotional. Research shows that children who grow up with warm, nurturing, and actively involved fathers:
  • Higher educational achievement Increased emotional security
  • Greater capacity for empathy
  • Non-traditional attitudes to earning and childcare
  • Greater social mobility/earnings relative to parents
  • More satisfying adult sexual partnerships
  • Higher self-esteem and life-satisfaction
  • Lower adolescent risk behaviour and criminality

Dads also have significant impacts on children’s early education and long term academic outcomes. However, fathers are sometimes vulnerable, may have their own mental health or other issues that make a risk to children if unassessed and unsupported.

In order to build on the social capital of fatherhood dads need to be engaged effectively from the outset. The Two ½ day training sessions will include:-

1. Attitudes, stereotypes and beliefs
2. What is Father Inclusive Practice?
3. Research and evidence
4. Mapping service provision
5. Working with the couple/parental relationship

Please note
There are 2 sessions between Friday 25 June 2021 and Friday 2 July 2021

What does this event cover
The best way to start learning Makaton is to attend Level 1 training. It means that you learn with other people, share your experiences, receive feedback on your signing and symbol work and enables you to practise with others. It also gives you the opportunity to meet and build a relationship with a Makaton Tutor, who can help and support you in the future.

All Makaton training provides you with information about what Makaton is and how it can be used in different settings. You also learn signs and symbols from the Core Vocabulary to an appropriate level. The Core Vocabulary has the signs and symbols needed for everyday communication.

The online training is a combination of practical signing sessions and presentations delivered live by a Licensed Makaton Tutor in a virtual meeting room.
