The Scene and the Unseen

Attachment theory and its applications in education settings.

All work

The Scene and the Unseen is a unique collaboration between Geese and Dr Dawn Bradley, offering a dynamic fusion of theatre and theory. This is a must-see training event if you are seeking to gain a deeper understanding and insight into the lived experiences of children and young people who have experienced, or who continue to experience, adversity (ACEs) and who may be care-experienced.

Getting Connected Education Project

Geese has worked with Dawn, who is an EMDR trauma therapist and Educational Psychologist specialising in supporting children and young people with attachment injuries and trauma wounds in schools, to create bespoke training events to meet the specific needs of commissioning agencies.

The Scene and the Unseen can be geared towards staff who work with children in a specific age group or towards specific roles e.g. designated teachers for Looked After Children or Safeguarding Leads. Interactive theatre is presented alongside a keynote which offers interpretation, reframing, and exploration of the fictional characters’ behaviour, their function and the child or young person’s needs.

The Scene and the Unseen can also be delivered as an Online Performance. For more details about how these performances work please click below.
