Sleeping Dogs Training

5/5
This training was invaluable in better understanding how to prepare young people to engage in therapy. It is useful for members of young people’s care teams whether they are carers, casemanagers, or therapists. Highly recommend!

I work here for nine years and we always speak about reunification, but for the first time I actually see it happen

“Arianne is a calm and clear presence, a clinician with both head and heart who artfully describes the process of blazing a trail through the forest of developmental trauma for children and young people, to a place where their sleeping dogs can be safely awakened and healing can take place”
5/5
Sleeping dogs training has equipped me with the skills to feel able to wake up and hold the sleeping dogs in young people. Not to avoid them and how to work through the barriers. It was a scary concept before training but now I feel more confident.

This training is essential for working with children with trauma, its so important to support kids to address difficult stuff and this doesnt shut them down it lets them address issues.
5/5
During my training I was taught that if there are no trauma symptoms we should leave the trauma processing for a later time. Arianne’s training explained so clearly why this is not true!This is exactly what we need in residential care. This will help our kids so much, and is so practical and kind.

In the team we talk more about the trauma instead of behaviours. It made my work so much more fun, the family work is what we do it for.

5/5
I have just finished watching the sixth workshop in the series and want to say how useful I found all of the workshops. I thought there was a great balance between theory and practice with the emphasis being placed on skill development. I found the workshops fitted well together and complimented each other and the I think the 90 min segments were well paced covering the content in an accessible way. Many thanks for your generosity in sharing your skills and experience.
