Our Trauma-Informed Educators (TIEs) training equips delegates to become the lead ‘Trauma educator’ within their organisation, so they can deliver lasting and sustainable change as organisations move towards trauma-informed understanding.

It provides delegates with a thorough understanding of the prevalence and impact of complex and developmental trauma.

The training will include inputs from experts including those with organisation and cultural change knowledge.

About the training

The TIEs training is the most comprehensive Trauma-Informed Practice training Rock Pool provide.  Delivered over 3 module and 9 training days, we will share evidence based best practice from international research on what works.

The training provides participants with the skills and information to enable them to advocate for Trauma-Informed practice and advise on approaches to trauma-informed work within their organisations.  This will include:

  • how to deliver a trauma-informed audit
  • advise on policies and procedures
  • better understanding on how to support staff and deliver supervision.

In addition, participants will be supported to deliver the Rock Pool Bitesize Trauma Introduction training.

By the end of this training we want to inspire and motivate delegates to facilitate the organisations they represent becoming truly trauma-informed.

"The trauma training has helped the staff think about how they approach and view young people and to consider that everyone has experienced trauma. It gives practitioners a wider understanding of the lived experiences of the children that they work with in order to understand better the behaviours that are presented are often a physical and unconscious response to this trauma and that responses and interactions with them need to consider this and be adapted accordingly. This is not necessarily taking an approach that is deemed to be light touch, or without consequence for actions but with a broader understanding, better advice and appropriate services that are more able to think in a trauma informed way. The decision making around young people has already proven to be more effective with regards to outcomes for our service."
