Welcome to our Spring 2021 Newsletter!

We hope you are keeping well and with winter passing and spring arriving there seems more to look forward to now. We have been fortunate in continuing to deliver a record number of training sessions including School Partnerships, Family Centre Teams and Local Authority. These have been provided online with those new to Protective Behaviours and with many progressing to Level 2 and also to become facilitators. Truly delighted that we are training more facilitators to run our evidence based Protective Behaviours programme for Mums, Dads & Carers with another course planned in the summer with Barnardos.

Dave’s retirement

My dear friend and co-director Dave will be retiring soon. Having met on our Protective Behaviours journey over 22 years ago, Dave will be retiring at the end of April though will continue to co-deliver some PB training sessions over the summer. Dave will be continuing his work as a mindfulness teacher and can be contacted on 07929 742295 and dave@amindfulness.co.uk

Training professionals

Our next online Open Access Protective Behaviours training courses at Level 1 & Level 2 are in April and May with places available. Dates and details are under ‘What’s coming up’. We are not yet able to run ‘face to face’ training and parent groups and we hope these will resume in the not too distant future.
