Education Settings

Do you want to develop a whole school trauma informed approach?

About our service

On average 1 in 6 children aged 6-16 experience mental health difficulties (The Centre of Mental Health Report: Children and Young People Mental Health 2021).

At Meadows Psychology Service, we understand that education can be extremely difficult for children who have experienced trauma and/or those who experience mental health difficulties. Presenting difficulties can we wide-ranging, but may include difficulties with social interactions, language, communication, emotional regulation, sensory processing, or behaviour. Our experienced team of psychologists and psychological therapists work to support a range of schools and alternative education settings across the country in establishing a whole school, trauma informed approach which promotes positive and inclusive outcomes for children, young people and their families. This is achieved through:

Training and Development:

Meadows Psychology Services offers a range of training packages, including:

  • Whole school trauma sensitive training
  • A.C.E training for schools
  • Understanding Attachment and Developmental Trauma
  • Harmful Sexual Behaviour in Schools
  • Working with young people with sensory processing difficulties

Bespoke training packages can also be delivered to meet the specific requirements individual schools or clusters of schools.

Consultation

Monthly consultations can be held with staff teams to ensure staff feel they have the skills and confidence needed to work therapeutically with the young people they work alongside. Education provisions can also request consultation support to address whole school issues or support whole school development plans.

Reflective Practice

At Meadows psychology service, we recognise the importance of supporting and enhancing staff resilience and well-being. Our reflective sessions aim to provide a safe space for school staff teams to explore the realms of working within complex systems with children and young people who can present with challenging and complex difficulties within the learning environment.

Assessments

We offer a range of psychological assessments for children and the systems around the child, including assessments of risk (e.g., AIM3). This aims to provide the staff team with a greater awareness of each young person’s individual strengths and difficulties, and guidance on therapeutic ways of working to support each child in a way that is trauma-informed and responsive.  All our assessments highlight recommendations for direct therapeutic intervention with a therapist, in addition to recommendations and specific guidance for staff within the school environment.

Individual Therapy

We work directly with students and parents/carers supporting a systemic approach to therapy. Sessions can be offered through small group work or on a one-to-one basis with children and young people.
