The purpose of this course

In this course we introduce you to the internationally recognised Circle of Friends approach.

We explain how best to learn about this way of working - we preview the longer course and alternative training options - and also how Inclusive Solutions can help you with creating Circles.

This approach could change the life of a child you really care about or one you find particularly challenging.

Additionally, our book 'Creating Circles of Friends' is available if you would like a physical guide to the process.

Responses to the Circle of Friends approach

"I read your Creating Circles of Friends book from cover to cover over the summer and found it truly inspiring. I am hoping to work with my schools this year on introducing and persuading them to trust and believe in this very powerful and effective approach"

The approach "ultimately leads to the child learning more appropriate social behaviour, which will enable them to get on better with their peers. Obviously this in turn helps them to rebuild a peer group relationship and to continue to work on problems that will lead to more acceptance and inclusion rather than exclusion"
