Training Courses

JLTS has devised a series of three training courses, which have been specifically designed to help Professionals who work with vulnerable children and their families. They are especially beneficial for Professionals and individuals (parents/guardians) who have involvement with children/young people that struggle to regulate their emotions and behaviour in the classroom or at home, and who may have also experienced some unsuccessful statutory interventions. 

Our training courses comprise of:

Our training courses are designed to complement each other and, although they are stand-alone courses, we recommend they are undertaken together for continuity and a better learning experience.

JLTS's training courses have been written and developed by Jess Lovibond, and animated and narrated by the very talented Gary Nightingale.

WHAT TO EXPECT

JLTS Training Courses

Holistic Assessment for Contextual Safeguarding and the Benefits of Supervision

 

The first of our 3 training courses will help you to understand what Contextual Safeguarding is and the importance of it in your practice; as well as introducing the concept and principles of Holistic Assessment and explaining why Holistic Assessment gives the best chance of a positive outcome from a single intervention. In addition, you will gain an understanding of what Supervision is and the importance of it for good practice and self-care.

What is Holistic Assessment for Contextual Safeguarding?

 

Holistic Assessment for Contextual Safeguarding gives the best chance of a positive outcome from a single intervention

Holistic Assessment for Contextual Safeguarding is a process for assessing the overall well-being and safety of an individual within the context of their family, community, and environment. It involves gathering information from multiple sources, including the individual, their family, and relevant professionals, and using that information to identify any potential risks or concerns. The assessment also includes an evaluation of the individual's strengths and support systems, as well as the provision of appropriate interventions and support. The goal of holistic assessment is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the individual's situation and to ensure that any interventions are tailored to their specific needs.

What is Supervision?

In relation to the topics covered in this course we also felt it important to include training regarding Supervision. Supervision refers to the process of providing guidance and support to Professionals as they carry out their duties. This can include providing feedback, discussing ethical dilemmas, and helping you to develop the skills and knowledge you need to effectively undertake your duties. Supervision plays an important role in your professional development; it helps to prevent burnout and is important for good practice and self-care.

Understanding ACEs and the Importance of Trauma-Aware practice

Our second training course will give you an understanding of what ACEs are, what trauma is and the therapeutic importance of trauma-awareness. You will learn how being trauma-aware in your practice will improve outcomes for the child and family. On completion you will be able to recognise ACEs and Trauma, be able to tell the difference and know how to work compassionately with them.

What are ACEs and Trauma-Aware Practice?

 

Trauma-Aware Practice improves outcomes for the child and family

ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) refer to traumatic experiences that occur during childhood and can have lasting, negative effects on a person's health and well-being. Research has shown that ACEs increase the risk of developing a range of health problems later in life, including chronic diseases, mental health issues, and substance abuse. The concept of ACEs is important in understanding the long-term effects of childhood trauma and in promoting resilience and healing in individuals who have experienced ACEs.

Trauma-Aware practice is a method of providing support to individuals who have experienced trauma, that recognises the impact of trauma on a person's life and behavior, and seeks to avoid re-traumatisation. This approach focuses on creating a safe, empowering, and supportive environment that takes into account the individual's experiences, needs, and strengths. It also involves being mindful of the potential triggers and stressors that may arise during interactions and seeks to address these in a compassionate and respectful manner. The goal of Trauma-Aware practice is to help individuals heal and recover from their traumatic experiences.

This approach values the child's unique experiences and perspectives, and recognizes that children are capable, competent and active learners.

Course Creator - jess lovibond

Course creator, Jess Lovibond, is a therapeutic practitioner with a PGC in Applied Systemic Theory (Family Therapy), and has over 20 years experience working with children and families in both social care and school settings. Through her work and experience, Jess has implemented an existing practice model in an entirely new way via Holistic Assessment, creating a unique holistic approach, which she is now sharing! This approach has proven to be a very successful method for people who are experiencing difficulties with complex relationships.

Background

In 2000, Jess Lovibond began working with families in residential children’s homes, in front line social work, and later, in mainstream schools. Her work has focused on supporting children/ young people with their unique special educational needs (SEN) and their social, emotional, and mental health (SEMH) needs.

 

Jess is a qualified child-centred therapeutic practitioner. She has qualifications as a specialist children and young person counsellor, and PGC in Applied Systemic Theory. Jess is a contextual safeguarding practitioner and is a Freedom project facilitator.

 

This means Jess starts any therapeutic work with the child themselves, and then explores the dynamic around that child. Her practice includes compiling a detailed assessment of three generations of the family to better understand how the family functions, and how the child operates within that family.

 

Through Jess’s work and experience she has implemented an existing practice model in an entirely new way, creating The JLTS Model, a unique holistic approach. This has proven to be a very successful method for people who are experiencing difficulties with complex relationships.

 

The JLTS Model is very successful for families who are going through tough times and our unique Holistic Assessment Framework ensures that Contextual Safeguarding is at the heart of everything we do.
