Thrive Licensed Practitioner Course

Given the importance of support mental health of children and young people today, Judicium is delighted to be working with Thrive.

Our Data Protection Officer Service is intended to assist schools and Multi Academy Trusts (MATs) in complying with the requirement to appointment such a role with the responsibilities set out in Article 39 of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

Thrive, a leading provider of training and tools for a whole-school approach to wellbeing, has a specific way of working with children and young people that promotes mental wellbeing while helping to prevent mental health issues.

With an insight into how the brain develops during childhood and adolescence and the role our relationships with students can play, you can seize new opportunities to help children and young people build their resilience, become more open to learning and thrive!

As a Thrive Licensed Practitioner, you will gain a deep, practical knowledge of Thrive and the underpinning theory, science and skills required to meet the reparative needs of children and young people with interrupted social and emotional development. You will have access to Thrive-Online, a web-based profiling, monitoring and action-planning tool, to work with individuals and small groups requiring additional support.

There are three versions of this course, based on the age of the children and young people you work with:

  • Early Years (from birth to 5 years) – develop a ‘right-time’ approach to helping babies and very young children develop healthy, secure attachments and build their emotional resilience.
  • Childhood (for primary school-aged students) – discover why sometimes the disruptive behaviour children present can be their way of communicating, and how your relationship with them can help them become more open to learning.
  • Adolescence (for secondary school-aged students) – explore the huge opportunity adolescence offers to build young people’s resilience and support their wellbeing while helping to prevent mental health issues arising.

 

Who is this for?

The Licensed Practitioner courses are suitable for anyone working with children and young people on a group or one-to-one basis. If you are passionate about developing supportive and positive connections, enabling improved wellbeing and achievement, you will be perfectly placed to implement the Thrive Approach in your setting.
