Information on the training

It’s a pleasure to bring to you the Building Attachments (PACE) Training Workshop, facilitated by Anne-Marie Tipper, Director and Founder of The Annex Project (UK) and Rafiki Mwema. Participants to will gain a better understanding of the impact of adverse childhood experience and how to connect to children and young people who show complex, and often, difficult and challenging behaviours.

This workshop brings the participants a rare and unique opportunity to explore the impact of trauma on young children and teenagers, through the relationship of one of our boys, Peter, from Rafiki Mwema and Anne-Marie.

Peter will bring to life what it's like to survive extreme circumstances and will demonstrate how your brain can be changed through connection, therapeutic parenting and love.

Peter is articulate, funny, and totally honest about living through trauma and how to improve your life by being brave enough to accept love.

Background on Trainer

Anne-Marie, Director of The Annex Project, is in Australia to deliver an interactive workshop where the participants will be helped to better understand the impact of early developmental trauma for children and young people, and how to improve the outlook for these young people who display complex and challenging behaviours.

The model is based on the work of Dr. Daniel Hughes, Dr. Julie Hudson and Dr. Kim Golding and is embedded strongly in attachment theory. It will also bring in the work of Pat Crittenden who has an attachment model (DMM) that supports Carers understanding the meaning behind the behaviors they demonstrate.

This training is a unique opportunity to learn through the words of a young boy who spent his life on the streets, our very own Peter

Peter lived his childhood on the streets and will share with you how brains heal through therapeutic parenting.

Testimonials from previous attendees below...

Anne-Marie's determination and wealth of experience matched with Peter's bravery and joy makes this training PRICELESS! Anyone with any contact with children in their lives (and that's everyone) NEEDS this training!! Thank you Peter & Anne-Marie.

Amazing, thankyou Anne-Marie & Peter. I have never learnt so much in two days! Anne-Marie & Peter did such an amazing job of explaining very complex ideas and understandings that everyone should hear. A fantastic course for all carers, parents, brothers, sisters, youth workers, men, women, outreach workers, educators, healers, the list just goes on...

Testimonial - Such a great workshop and information that everyone needs to know. Excellent for every single person coming into contact children. If even half my foster carers had basic knowledge of childhood trauma my childhood would have been completely different. Anne-Marie is more engaging than any of my university lecturers.

Thank you! Thank you! This has been an incredibly valuable and powerful insight for me into how traumatised children think and behave. I hope that I can now put into action some of the key components in my own interactions with children - that of connecting and understanding. Having both Anne-Marie's expertise and experience as well as Peter's honesty and bravery to talk of his emotions and behaviour has been the most valuable and important tool to the success of this workshop for me personally!
