To book a 'closed' training just for your team, please ring 0121 296 4448 or email solihull.approach@uhb.nhs.uk and we will create a bespoke order form for you. For individuals, please go to 'Book an individual training place'.

This seminar builds on the information in the 2 Day Foundation Training. It covers antenatal brain development and adolescent brain development, plus an introduction to mirror neurons. It includes a quick recap of the Solihull Approach model. It can be used as a stand alone seminar, but provides most value as a follow up to the 2 Day Foundation training to deepen knowledge and to keep moving theory into practice.

This seminar is designed to consolidate learning from the 2 Day Foundation, but will provide the best value as part of a theory into practice strategy that includes work discussion time, the Refresher Day and the seminars on brain development, attachment and trauma.

This was originally designed to be delivered as a 3 1/2 hour seminar, but this is quite rushed with little time to process the information. The alternative is to present it as a 5 hour seminar, which provides more time to deliver and process the information.

The training requires a Supporting Information Booklet, at £8 for each delegate, designed to move theory into practice. It is included in the training for individuals.

You can run this seminar in your local area with the right Trainer's Manual. You need to have completed the 2 Day Foundation Training. Preferably you'll have also completed Train the Trainer, but this is not a requirement.

If you want to observe the seminar before running it yourself, you can ask us to run it for you in your local area or you can attend this seminar virtually via Zoom or in Solihull, as available.

It is also available as an online course.
