This training day aims to increase understanding of low mood and depression in young people, and introduce you to ideas around how low mood develops, how to identify young people with mood difficulties, and the risks associated with this. We will discuss what helps, and you will be given practical strategies and resources to use with pupils that have been shown to be effective.
You will also be introduced to motivational and solution-focused approaches to talking to/working with young people, and learn how these can be helpful in improving pupils’ confidence and motivation to engage and make positive changes.
All slides and resources, and additional training materials, will be available to download after the session, to enable attendees to cascade the training within their school settings.
