About the Session

We’ll explore how to create a safe environment and develop trusting relationships with families who’ve experienced extreme adversity. We’ll look to understand the needs of families with experience of violence, war and other dangers and consider the steps we can take to meet these needs to enable both adults and children to settle, feel secure and begin to shine.
