SOLD OUT. Dr Dan Hughes and Dr Jon Baylin from the US have developed a brain-based approach to interventions with children who have been under or badly nurtured.

They will describe their concepts of ‘blocked trust’ and ‘blocked care’; look at ways to help under-nurtured children learn to trust trustworthy people; and take us through the processes that help children recover from blocked trust; reawaken their ability to seek comfort and experience the joy of good connections. The presenters will also discuss ways to strengthen your ability to be a trust builder.
