Support the Development of Socially Aware Behaviour with Children and Young People in Residential Childcare
When a child or young person grows up in a healthy family home they will usually develop behaviours that demonstrate awareness of normal social rules and conventions. They will be surrounded by role-models such as their parents, who reflect socially aware behaviours, and will naturally learn from them.
For some children this is not the case. They may be faced with the need to develop socially aware behaviour in another environment, such as a children’s home. Staff, in these environments, often seek to undo the poor behaviours they may have learnt in their past, to support them to develop positive ways of being in society.
This online course explores the development of socially aware behaviour, and how this can be modelled and enhanced by those working with children and young people living in residential childcare.
Who should take this online course?
This training course has been designed specifically for people working with children and young people. It may also be useful to a wider audience of people who would like to know more about supporting children and young people to develop socially aware behaviour. The online course provides content to meet qualification units relating to residential childcare.
