"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."
