The programme has been split into 3 parts, the 1st part aims to change parental attitude, and in particular reduce blame, guilt and shame. The 2nd part explores the use of consequences to change unwanted behaviour and the 3rd supports parents to make changes within the home while working on a few advanced topics; anger; assertiveness; self-care.

Trauma and Bereavement Training
Designed for both men and women who have experienced bereavement and loss through trauma related events. The exploration and healing process will take place through ‘experiential’ programme of support using a mixture of therapeutic arts, sand play, music, poetry, and meditation. This course focuses on the ‘healing of the trauma’ as opposed to ‘replaying the trauma’. WEB’s Bereavement & Trauma workshops is accessible to all who have suffered bereavement and loss by violence, crime, and suicide related deaths and losses. Also, individuals who may have been through the ‘trauma of being removed from their families and communities and who have been through the care system’ (we recognise some of those losses may also be through long term imprisonments). At WEB, we recognise that the impact of trauma is devastating and far reaching, affecting individuals, whole families, and often the wider community. This therapeutic and experiential workshop will work at the pace of each ‘individual’ as we realise each healing journey is unique to each individual. This healing workshop will be facilitated by experienced and qualified counsellors who are trained in ‘working creatively with trauma’.
