Pastoral Network  29th June 2021 – Special Guest – Louise Bombèr

 We are absolutely thrilled to announce that renowned Clinical Lead, Teacher and Therapist Louise Bombèr will be joining our Pastoral Network on 29th June 2021.

Louise Michelle Bombèr is qualified as both a specialist teacher, a therapist and a DDP certified practitioner. She is the Clinical Lead and the Director of TouchBase Centre CiC in  Brighton. The aims of TouchBase are to support those who have experienced adverse childhood experiences to function well at home, in their schools and out in community. Louise and her team offer a range of support services for children and young adults (5 to 25) who have experienced significant  relational traumas and  losses to move towards learned security and recovery. They also support family, friends and professionals around these children.

Thriving  – Not Surviving Post Lockdown

What can we do in order to facilitate the best contexts for children and young people so that they can thrive, not merely survive in home, school and community contexts. Those who have experienced  relational traumas and losses are often misunderstood and misinterpreted by those who could offer them the best opportunities for second chance learning so that they can learn security. Trauma responsive practice is even more important than ever before. For such a time as this.

Join us for this exciting session of our FREE Pastoral Network, it’s not too late and don’t forget to invite your colleagues within Pastoral care.  We look forward to welcoming you.
