Child Development with Dr Bruce Perry

Bruce Perry’s work on child development and trauma has informed the work of Berry Street’s Calmer Classrooms. Through our partnership with Berry Street, Bruce’s work also informs ours.

It’s worth noticing his steps of development and by inference, what happens to children when these steps are missing or interrupted; lack of self-regulation, ability to socialise and be empathetic.

These insights have informed the structuring and elements of our KIds Thrive workshops to support the practice of these foundations; self-regulation, socialising/collaboration and empathy.
