Raising Children with Confidence training starts in Edinburgh
Brock, from our Edinburgh Dads’ Club, has been collaborating with the Gilmerton Early Years Centre in facilitating ‘Raising Children with Confidence’ training this month.
This is a programme developed by the City of Edinburgh which draws on contemporary research in neuroscience, psychology and social science.
Brock’s ‘dads-only version’ of the course aims to enable individuals to promote emotional well-being in themselves and the children and young people they care for.
The key messages echo many of OPFS’ values in stressing the importance of relationships, positive interactions and role modelling in nurturing a sense of meaning and belonging, while attempting to develop emotionally strong individuals and communities.
The 6-week programme is free to attend (and be trained in). Feel free to get in touch with Brock if you’re curious about how you might get involved.
