Enhancing your knowledge and skill is our passion
We are passionate about equipping and assisting professionals working with children and families with the necessary knowledge and skills to provide integrated and effective services.
We provide a variety of training courses, as well as tailor made packages and content to suit the unique needs of organisations. We have offered training across South Africa to social workers and other mental health professionals, schools, and even government organisations like the South African Police Service.
We have developed a comprehensive course on Socio-Emotional Assessments of Children, as well as Forensic Investigations into Allegations of Abuse. Our training also covers a variety of therapeutic topics such as Divorce Counselling for Children, Bereavement Counselling for Children, Structured Trauma Therapy and Trauma Debriefing, Nurturing Attachments Between Parents and Children, Foster Care Training, and much more.
Our training programmes are structured in such a way to give you the best of both worlds. Through our various learning programmes, we provide a safer and more predictable learning environment that at the same time affords students to utilize their own time to view certain pre-recorded session on-line, while still meeting for regular virtual meetings that encourage student participation and ample time for question and ensuring all practical aspects are integrated
