19KEC228 Nurture Group Theory & Practice Information Session


Date / Time: Thursday 21st March 2019 (6pm-8pm)

Facilitator:  Susan Gibney

This Information Session on Nurture Group Theory and Practice is an introduction for school personnel on the theory behind Nurture Groups and how to engage in the practice of running a Nurture Group and being a Nurturing School. 

During this session, the following will be addressed:

  • The practicalities of setting up and running a nurture group – early years, primary and secondary.
  • An outline of up-to-date research in attachment theory and neuroscience.
  • Nurture Groups and child development and learning.
  • An introduction to the Boxall Profile and how it is used to refer children and youngpeople, set targets and put in place practical strategies to address the challenges children have.
  • Linking to the curriculum.
  • Developing a whole-school nurturing approach.
  • Monitoring and evaluation through a structured, evidence-based, planned approach.

This Information Session will be of interest to those who wish to set up and run a nurture group. It is also suitable for schools who want to adopt a more nurturing approach while working with children who have any or all of the following: social, emotional and/or behavioural difficulties, low self-confidence, low self-esteem, low resilience, self-regulation difficulties and/or self-expression difficulties.

Following the Information Session, participants will have the opportunity to enrol in a full 'Nurture Group Theory and Practice Course', in Kildare Education Centre, with an option for accreditation as a Nurture Group Practitioner (on submission of an assignment).
