Attachment Research Community events
Birmingham Virtual School work closely with the Attachment Research Community (ARC). ARC supports schools and settings to develop best attachment and trauma aware practice. ARC is a charitable organisation set up in 2017 with a mission to support all schools to be attachment and trauma aware by 2025.
Every year they hold a national conference to raise awareness and support the delivery of the best attachment aware practice in education.
'Leading the Attachment and Trauma Aware Setting'
Schools and settings face considerable challenges in addressing the mental health and well-being needs of all members of their learning communities:
- aligning approaches to behaviour management and mental health and well-being
- implementing whole school approaches amidst many other development priorities
- commissioning training and support for young people, staff and the SLT
- understanding the impact of strategy.
ARC's 2020 conference will focus on these leadership challenges with inputs from school and setting leaders, and researchers who have taken an approach based on attachment and trauma theory and seen its positive impact.
Our aim is that you can take away inspiration, practical advice and useful challenges that you can start to utilise in your school or setting tomorrow.
Online conference details
The safety of our delegates and the ARC Team is extremely important to us and therefore, with this in mind we are excited to announce that we will be offering the full CPD accredited day online.
The whole day will be available on-demand for all delegated from 25 November 2020.
The day will consist of a series of keynote speaker sessions as well as webinars where you will hear from colleagues that have been implementing attachment aware and trauma informed practices into their schools.
Each session will end with a question and answer section and you can submit your questions directly to the speaker.
Don't worry if you can't make the full day, we will be recording all sessions and they will be available to all delegates to watch after the event.
We will also keep open as many Q and A sessions as we can, so if you need more information you can ask the speakers.
