Wired for Love

This October at the Practitioners' Gathering we will be 'Wired for Love'.

Bringing together practitioners and young people we will explore just how our brains work at different times in our lives, and how love and relationships play their part in making all our lives better. There will be lots happening during this special Care Leavers Week event including:

Gerald Neil, himself care-experienced, will help us think about how our brains work when the going is good and when the going is tough.

He will guide us though a session focusing on techniques we can use to help us in our everyday situations both as practitioners and as young people.

He will help us consider how we can be excited by our futures and how we can make the most of the supportive relationships available to us.

Gerald is now a successful accountant, family man and a qualified stress and relaxation therapist.

Role models and relationships: We will be joined on the day by several care-experienced people who themselves have overcome barriers and become successful in their chosen field.

The Big Brain Game is an interactive session exploring how we can put all of this learning into practice and enable our brains to be wired for love.

Thanks to funding from the Life Changes Trust we can offer one free place for young people per worker.

Feedback from Gerald's last course:
"Great speaker, really put into context the way YP are dealing with trauma/stress, how to recognise it and techniques to help overcome it"
"Powerful, funny and very moving"
"This was a very touching and inspiring course. It inspires me on the work we do and how small changes make big impacts on our lives"
