Our CPD Accredited 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

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 training will explore trauma theory and how the Acceptance of a trauma model offers the potential for recovery. It provides delegates with the opportunity to relate theory to practice through the use of interactive exercises.

It enables delegates to understand that by exploring the Behaviours that result from trauma it is possible to understand that it is ‘what happened’ to the child or young person that resulted in coping strategies that can be destructive to the individual, family and society.

By being Curious as individuals we can facilitate a collaborative culture to promote healing and autonomy. Delegates will have the opportunity to explore models of working and be provided with resources to support trauma informed practice

Rock Pool’s training courses use a trauma-informed psycho-educational model.

We facilitate a safe space to ensure learning and promote collaboration. Our training is designed to be strengths based and skills building.

"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."
