‘Know Me to Teach Me: The antidote to exclusion’

Delivered by Louise Michelle Bomber this session is for anyone concerned about the education of traumatised children and young people

Folk will hopefully feel inspired and brave enough to have a go at doing school differently, in line with what we now know re child development, attachment and the neuroscience.

Louise Michelle Bombèr is qualified as both a specialist teacher, a therapist and a DDP certified practitioner. She is the Founding 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.

Louise has a wealth of lived experience as both an adoptive parent and as a professional. As well as having written many articles, she is the author of the very popular book ‘Inside I’m Hurting’, now translated into French and Italian. She also wrote What About Me?. Louise contributed to the book ‘Teenagers & Attachment’. She has co-authored ‘Settling Troubled Pupils to Learn: Why Relationships Matter in School’ together with Dan Hughes. Louise contributed to a specialist family law book ‘Capacity to Change’ outlining what needs to be considered for traumatized children and their lives in school. More recently Louise has written the ‘Attachment Aware Schools Series – Bridging the gap for troubled pupils’ to support schools to create effective small teams around pupils – Team Pupil. Her most recent books are ‘Know Me to Teach Me’, a book that advocates for differentiated discipline in schools using the latest findings in child development and neuroscience. Along with ‘Working with Relational Trauma in Schools: An Educator's Guide to Using Dyadic Developmental Practice’ co-authored with Dr Sian Phillips and Dr Kim Golding. www.touchbase.org.uk
