just wondered if anyone knew anything about the "charity" place2be, we were given a letter from our kids primary school informing us that this wonderful charity will be offering a place2be to our kids, which will help them learn about how to be happy with themselves through talking and creative play with their highly trained volunteers, in addition to the place2be there is a place2talk which seems to be a counselling service for 6 year old's which gives them anytime access to this volunteer to discuss any problems about relationships, family, home life etc.
when i looked at the web site place2be the volunteer training etc seems to revolve around cognitive behavior, neurobiology etc,
the whole feel of the project reeks of NLP, common purpose?,1984 style inform on the parents and 'change agents' in general.
Worryingly this was an opt out rather than an opt in scheme, so how many parents out there are letting children in without any information about the techniques used
has anyone else out there come across this group i think it would be interesting to find out what other groups are involved behind the scenes with training and funding etc.
