Trusted by:

We have a course that’s proven to help.

No fluff or vanity metrics. Just real, tangible results.

"...every person who works in residential care should have this training"

“Firstly, I believe every person who works in residential care should have this training, and not only residential care staff, but local authorities, Ofsted and anyone who works within this field needs to have this.

The training provoked so much in me! Every day I left feeling excited and more passionate (if that’s possible) about how we support children who have experienced trauma.

Although I am clinically trained (although do no claim to be an expert!) I still learnt so much from the course, and not just the content, I learnt things about myself too! You made the space feel safe, so I could be vulnerable and reflect on my values and practice (because let’s not forget that being vulnerable takes courage! – can you tell I am reading Brene Brown at the moment?) Of course, I cannot speak for everyone, but I got a sense that others felt the same just from their contributions and the feedback they provided at the end of each day.

If I could have pictured the attachment and trauma-informed training I wanted the team to have, this would have been it, so I’m so pleased this is going to be the quality of training we are going to have for all our new team members!

Helen, I believe the way you delivered the content was a big part of the course! Your authenticity, enthusiasm, and passion shines through (and you’re just an all-round kind and funny person!). Your experience sounds amazing, and it was great to hear you relate the theory back to that. I think this really helps with people being able to retain information. I’m taking all your ideas and running with them! 

So, if I haven’t already said this enough, thank you again for a fantastic week!”.

Reduction in Incidents

“This programme and the train the trainer programme ensures that my homes have access to such a comprehensive and well-rounded programme that absolutely mirrors our own values.

It is aligned to our attachment and trauma-informed approach which means that the children within our service can be assured of the best quality, psychologically informed support. It enables adults to remain attuned and therefore reduces the levels of distress experienced by the children. This translates directly as a reduction in incidents”.

Helen Hoggins, Head of Residential, Five Rivers Childcare

Giving staff the skills

“I highly recommend Proactive Approaches. It totally delivers in one package. My whole team enthuse about this training and it never fails to inspire. Their focus on understanding trauma, and the physiological and psychological impact this has, combined with effective attachment-aware trauma-informed approaches goes beyond any other behaviour support programme.

I love the way they have combined theory and trauma-informed strategies, giving staff the skills and tools they need for working with children who require high levels of support”.

Sharon Broadley, Registered Manager, The Ryes Children’s Homes

How Does +Proactive Approaches Deliver Results?

Our courses go beyond simply sharing information. Instead, we empower you and your staff to think deeply about your culture and make suitable and impactful changes that deliver tangible results.

After all, the language your team use to describe the Children they support will affect how they think about them and, subsequently, how they treat them.

We’ve reverse-engineered the process and our courses will challenge your staff to change culture in a positive way, resulting in happier Children & Adults and fewer issues for you.
