What does this event cover
The Resilient Families Framework training consists of three workshops (1 day each) and two practice integration sessions (2 hours). The Resilient Families Framework was designed collaboratively by Camden, AMBIT (Adaptive Mentalization-based Integrative Treatment, developed at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families) FPM (Family Partnership Model, developed by the Centre for Child and Parent Support) and input from the Voluntary and Community Sector. RFF supports practitioners to apply tools and processes in four core areas of their work: working with families; working with teams; working with networks and working in practice. The workshops provide an opportunity for practitioners to learn together about RFF, practice the tools and think about how they apply to their practice.

We will look at the scales, practice their use looking at DVD clips and reflect on proven strategies to enhance children’s Wellbeing and Involvement to take back to our teams
What does this event cover
We all have experience of working with children who for some reason or another show signs that they are not as settled in our settings as we would like, that they struggle with aspects of the social experience, find routines really challenging and need that bit of extra support to fully access a broad and balanced curriculum.

The POMS approach allows practitioners to quickly and efficiently monitor children to assess their Involvement and Wellbeing levels using descriptors offered within the Leuven Scales (developed by Prof. Ferre Laevers and his team from Leuven University, Belgium)

Using the POMS approach has resulted in swift success in not only identifying children with lower Involvement and Wellbeing in our settings, but in developing strategies to support them.
