“I am...” Digital transition stories are a powerful, effective and empowering strategy that can be used to support children and young people, families, parents/carers, and settings with transitions. Examples of transitions may include changes of setting or school, moving to another class or key stage or changes of adults who support the child or young person. The stories take a strengths-based child focused approach and create a rich and contextual insight into the child. The concept of ‘I am...” videos, was created by the University of Southampton in collaboration with ACoRNS and The Aviary Nursery.
The course is led by two of our Assistant Psychologists, Felicity Upton and Caroline Harley, and lasts approximately 35 minutes. There are opportunities to pause the training and reflect upon examples within your own setting. The session aims to support the ability to create “I am...” Digital transition stories.

The PACE model is grounded in trauma-informed practice and is a method that guides adults in how to help children feel safe, secure and trust in them. It focuses on the strengths and positive attributes of the child. PACE stands for playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy.

Psychological First Aid
Psychological First Aid is a humane, simple and powerful way of helping someone in distress during and after a crisis event, such as the coronavirus pandemic. Psychological First aid involves paying attention to the person’s reactions, active listening and if relevant, practical assistance to help address immediate problems and basic needs. It gives a framework for supporting people in ways that respect their dignity, culture and abilities. This training video has been developed by the Educational Psychology Service and directly links the use of Psychological First Aid to support people who may have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, including a case-study for practical application of knowledge.
