Webinars for Parent Carers - SEND & Extreme/ Violent Behavioural Challenges

For parent carers of children/ young people with special educational needs and/ or disabilities


WPCC has just received information about a series of 10 webinars funded by the NHS and open to parents and professionals who care for SEND children with anxiety-led extreme or violent behavioural challenges.

Unfortunately, some of the dates have now passed but there are still sessions taking place in November and December 2020, and January-March 2021.

The sessions are designed to empower parents to gain the skills needed to be able to rescue a child from their own difficulties, each one looks at a different aspect of how family life is impacted by a child with very difficult behaviours, and how to help a child cope better in a safer and happier way. Yvonne Newbold is a mother of a young man who was extremely violent and challenging for several years during childhood, and who never wants another family to have to wait for help for as long as her family did. Due to her workshops, writing, online support, training and webinars, there are now several hundred children who are no longer violent, and who instead are living happy and productive lives with a much more hopeful future ahead of them. Yvonne takes a very practical and down-to-earth approach, and every webinar is packed full of ideas, suggestions, tips tricks and strategies that can be implemented straight away and which can make a significant difference.
