Our courses have been carefully designed for childcare solicitors, social workers and allied professionals working in child welfare, safeguarding and family law, bringing key areas of psychology and related disciplines alive through accessible, relevant and targeted information. The online content means that busy professionals can progress through the course at their own pace and repeat modules as they wish.
The ART of Sikhāṇā
Accessible, Relevant, Targeted
Sikhāṇā online was founded in 2021 by Dr Jagdish Kaur Barn, an Educational, Child and Family Psychologist with over a decade of experience as an Expert Witness for the Family Court. In her interactions with colleagues in family law, Jagdish realised that there was limited training in key psychological theories relevant to child welfare and court proceedings specifically aimed at child care and family solicitors. Sikhāṇā is Jagdish’s answer to bridge this gap.
Our mission is to empower systems to keep families together, wherever possible.
Immersion in Sikhāṇā
"Any fool can know. The point is to understand"
If you have struggled to find targeted information related to the aetiology of Adversity, Cultural Displacement, Trauma and the associated Emotional, Developmental and Learning needs in children and young people, wondered how to word your letter of instruction to make it person-centred and specific or reflected on approaches and strategies to employ with hard-to-reach clients, Sikhāṇā Online is here to help.
Here at Sikhāṇā we are collaborators and co-constructors and value all feedback so please don’t be shy in telling us what you think. Take a browse, try One for the Kit Bag and if you like what you see immerse yourself in some Sikhāṇā.
