Work with us long

In July 2017, a team of staff from High Peak School attended an extensive training course in a therapy which will help them support the young people in their care. The course will also help them become one of the first in the UK to embed the therapy on a whole school basis.

The course, on Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), was delivered by two of the leading researchers in the field - Dr James Mazza and Dr Elizabeth Dexter-Mazza.

The team of 11 were taught about DBT skills which have been demonstrated to be effective in helping adolescents manage difficult emotional situations, cope with stress, and make better decisions. The three-day workshop presented an innovative social–emotional learning (SEL) curriculum designed to be taught in schools.

High Peak will be one of the first English schools to adopt a whole school approach to embed the programme into the curriculum. Training staff to teach skills in mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness.
