Five to Thrive: Attachment, Trauma and Resilience Training

In Wiltshire we are promoting a flexible, attachment-based approach to positive parenting called “Five to Thrive” that focuses on a set of five key principles – talk, play, relax, engage and respond. The principles are easy to convey and ensure a consistent multi-agency approach which we know families appreciate.

The FTT:ATR training programme is continuing during 2022. This training aims to upskill staff working in schools and school-based services across Wiltshire to support secure attachment, promote self-regulation and resilience and to develop a trauma informed practice. Training sessions are via a virtual platform and will be interactive.

Following a Headteachers briefing on 5th May 2022 schools can opt for either:

  • Free Five to Thrive training for up to 4 people per school (including 1 from SLT)      

or a
