Trauma-Informed Practice

Understanding Trauma - Standard (Zoom)

£245.00 2 hours

This course gives the knowledge and skills to support young people to work through their trauma and thus avoid some of the long-term negative neurological, developmental and psychological consequences.


It is essential that we use Trauma-informed practice when working with children and young people who have suffered neglect, rejection or emotional/physical/sexual abuse. Without support, they will continue to experience neurological, developmental and psychological consequences, even when placed in a secure nurturing environment. Therapeutic care provides a child with a supportive foundation where they can build trusting relationships with foster carers to help them to overcome traumatic experiences.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Understanding the national profile of trauma
2. The biological and psychosocial implications of experiencing trauma
3. Identify the symptoms of exposure to trauma
4. How to establish a therapeutic relationship
5. Understand the roots of negative behaviours in young people
6. Overview of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE), PTSD and Hypervigilance
7. Gain strategies to help support children and young people through change
8. Explore the strategy of trauma recovery and what constitutes therapeutic care

Advanced Training

This option is aimed at an audience with prior knowledge of the subject and isn’t suitable for.  Those that are new to the subject would be better with our standard course.

Need more time?

We recognise that sometimes groups need more time for discussions and group work. This can mean that a two-hour session is just not long enough to explore the curriculum and engage in question and answer sessions. So we are you offering the opportunity to extend the session by an hour to allow your trainees the chance to explore the curriculum fully!
