At Calm Together we know that around 1 in 10 children and young people have a diagnosable mental health condition by the age of 17, but that sadly access to early support and intervention can be challenging.
Often these mental health challenges can arise as a result of ACE's (Adverse Childhood Experiences), Adverse Community Environments and be compounded by Adverse Environment Experiences (e.g. Covid 19) - The 3 Realms of Adverse Childhood Experience.
At Calm Together we aim to support schools and organisations to think “systemically” about the effects of the 3 Realms of Adverse Childhood Experiences on not only Children & Young People, and their families, but on themselves as part of the “system” of support. Coping with traumatised and dysregulated children and their parents within schools and services affects professionals too!
We work toward creating and sustaining safe, stable, nurturing relationship and environment for all children and families in order to reduce the impact of, and consequences of ACEs to help all children and young people to reach their full potential.
We work with staff to develop strategies to support Children, Young People but also to manage the emotional effects of dealing with challenging behaviour. We offer this work through three main approaches, Consultancy, Training & Development, Reflective Supervision in Education.
We are particularly keen to hear from schools who would like to incorporate professional supervision as a model for ongoing professional development and self-care in light of the current COvid-19 challenges, and going beyond the traditional Teach then leave model.
