attachment trauma petition

Here is a link to a petition to try and get attachment trauma training made mandatory for all teachers. This could have made a big difference to my son's first school placement. As it is he has had to change schools (additional trauma) due to their inability to understand why he was behaving the way that he was, even after DH and myself spending hours with them.

I am a teacher as well (although we get plenty of training in this due to the nature of our pupils) and know that this would help so many pupils.

Hello - there is already a thread on this petition - see below.

We all think it is a great idea by the way

Hi tinks, you may wish too visit Gareth Marr at Adoption Social, also will except your link.
There are lots of LA's following your suggested route, of course this is voluntary. Edward Timpson and department of education I believe are on board , some LA's even have Inset training days (compulsory) and are quite organised, also have virtual head information and conferences around this subject.
