"The course delivery was excellent, every idea reinforced by practical examples that made it even more understandable. Lots of useful points and strategies that can be easily integrated into programmes."

Shirley Donegan, Social Care Worker


"I thought it was very practical and realistic. I feel you can relate most of the workshops/sheets into your everyday work with the young people and relate it to their placement plans. It helps remind the professionals to focus on the positives in our workplace and not to focus and dwell on the negative. I found the training was very well presented and captivated the audience's full attention."

Siobhan Callinan, Social Care Worker


"I found it was a very well presented and clear programme outlined. I feel it will be very effective for me to use with the young people I work with on an everyday level. I enjoyed the team work settings as it allowed people to voice opinions and to see if we were all thinking the same. I have no criticisms. I honestly feel you were brilliant and the work was great. Well done. Good luck in future programmes!"

Rosalind, CCW


"I really enjoyed doing this course. It made me look at the work we are doing with our young people and the progress we have made over time. It also made me more aware of the young person's needs and wants and how to help the young people work towards achieving these."

Ashling Smith, Social Care Worker


"Offers and validates practice in terms of the useful approaches outlined. Will allow for self-reflection on cases/practice etc. Excellent training and standard of workshop. Applies to a number of professions. The practical examples and exercises were excellent and motivating."

Claire Feeney, Social Worker


"Very beneficial two day course."

Sarah Clinton, SCW


"I found this course extremely interesting, useful and enjoyable. It made me think outside the box and how I am as a social care worker. It will benefit me without a doubt when working with young people and put a positive mood within myself and work environment."

Angela McDonnell, Social Care Worker


"I found the course very relevant and useful, easy to follow and real. It has given food for thought and validated existing practice. Presentation was excellent, with nice use of anecdotes and experiences. The two days flew which is always a good sign."

Henrietta White, Director of Services



Repairing the Damage course

Repairing the Damage.™

A 3-day course.

For whole teams working with young people who have been through experiences which are by any standards 'damaging'.

Some children - and adults - who have been through difficult or traumatic experiences are referred to as 'damaged'. It's an unpleasant word but can, unfortunately, be an apt one. The damage can take various forms but usually results in changes in the deepest parts of the brain, resulting in effects which are behavioural, cognitive, biological, social and emotional. Examples include: aggressive behaviour, withdrawal, poor self esteem, hostility to others, lack of interest in activities, disturbed sleep and appetite, sadness, anxiety or anger problems, and poor relationships. Although this is a disturbing list there are many children who exhibit most or all of these as a complete 'package' of apparently self-perpetuating – and worsening - problems, resistant to repeated intervention and thereby the cause of great frustration to professionals. The aim of this course is to repair the damage and so avoid those consequences.
