our associates

Each of our associates has years of excellence in practice, using the theory and research that underpins our training and consultancy to inform their own work.

They come from a variety of backgrounds: foster care, early years, teaching, therapy, social work, psychology, health and justice. Many of them have moved between disciplines, as their interests have taken them in different directions. What they all offer is a wealth of practical experience, both in direct work with vulnerable people, and in sharing their knowledge and wisdom with others.

Dr Janet Rose is a Senior Lecturer and the Award Leader for Early Childhood Education at Bath Spa University. She has over 20 years' experience of working in early years both in England and internationally.

In addition to her academic career, Janet has worked as a specialist early years teacher and for several local authorities developing training programmes for supporting young children. She also ran her own business providing workshops for parents, babies and toddlers. She has published numerous peer reviewed articles and writes regularly for the Early Years Foundation Stage Forum.

Janet is currently leading a research project that is implementing a community-wide, cross-disciplinary approach to promoting children's resilience and well-being and another which is exploring a comprehensive programme of support for children affected by early attachment difficulties, trauma and neglect. These projects incorporate the adoption of Emotion Coaching which is a evidence-based strategy for supporting children's capacity for pro-social behaviour and emotional self-regulation.
