About the course

An engaging online course to help teachers, school leaders and SENDCos and the Deaf learners in their care to build resilience and mental health awareness.

Deaf children are more likely to develop mental health conditions in comparison to their hearing peers. School staff will learn how to prevent Deaf children from developing mental health conditions, they will gain knowledge including the specific risk factors for Deaf children, how to develop resilience and the importance of supporting deaf identity. Each Deaf child is different with different needs as a child, but also as a Deaf individual. A "one size fits all" approach is not likely to be sufficient for the majority of Deaf children, so care should be taken to assess the environment on an individual basis. This in-depth online course has been developed by an experienced Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist to you understand the different mental health conditions that can affect Deaf learners and empower you to adequately support their wellbeing in mainstream secondary school settings.

When we think about sexual health, we might automatically think of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI’s) and getting ourselves checked for these at a Sexual Health clinic however, sexual health is much more than that. It’s about sexual identity, the law, consent, contraception, abuse and how we conduct ourselves in relationships.

This session will provide a background to all the elements mentioned above with an emphasis on both the fun and serious aspects of sex as well as a look at what goes on in a Sexual Health clinic. We will explore different LGBTQIA+ terms and definitions.
