Sleep Well Workshop (Trauma Informed) – Zoom

For adopters, foster carers, kinship carers, and birth parents of children & young people affected by early life trauma.

Bedtimes and sleep can be particularly challenging for children and young people with early life trauma and insecure attachments.

This workshop will be delivered by specialist sleep practitioners and will go through:

  • The importance and science of sleep
  • The reasons behind problems of night settling and night waking in children with trauma history
  • Good sleep hygiene, sleep cues and effective bedtime routines
  • Practical ideas around food and environment
  • Managing anxiety for good sleep
  • Strategies for settling your child/young person to sleep and staying asleep

Date: Friday 24th November

Time: 10am-12.30pm

Cost: £10 per Berkshire Parent/Carer and £15 per non-Berkshire Parent/Carer (plus Eventbrite fee). An additional parent/carer from the same family may attend for free. Please note this event is not open to professional attendees.


Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund this workshop is at minimal cost to Parent/Carers. It will be led by specialist sleep practitioners Helen Cattermole and Helen Tracey. Other areas of PSC work receive no funding at all, for example our Helpline, so we are always grateful for any donations however large or small.
