As a Community Interest Company we are keen to share our expertise for the benefit of the local community. We are running a special one-day Course that will take place on Saturday 20 July 2019 to support people in Brixham and surrounding areas who work with children and young people.

The Course will enable practitioners working with Children and Young People to understand the impact of trauma including adverse childhood experiences, trauma-informed practice and strategies to use to promote protective behaviours and develop resilience.

Upcoming Courses

About the training

The training will explore trauma theory and how the Acceptance of a trauma model offers the potential for recovery. By exploring the Behaviours that result from trauma it is possible to understand that it is ‘what happened’ to children and young people that resulted in coping strategies that can be destructive to the individual, family and society.

We believe that by being Curious as individuals we can facilitate a collaborative culture to promote healing and autonomy. We introduce simple activities to promote curiosity with those we support.

The cost of attending this course is £20 per person, plus VAT. 

The course will be held at our offices in Brixham.

Please use the Register Now button to book your place.

About the ABC of Trauma – Children and Young People

The ABC of Trauma – Children and Young People training day will provide delegates with the confidence to understand the pathology, impact and approaches used when working with children and young people who have, and maybe still are, experiencing trauma.

The course is designed to provide a thorough theoretical underpinning before giving delegates practical tools that can be used to build on in their practice.

We deliver our training using a trauma informed model, and so safety, opportunity for collaborative learning, strengths based and skill building are all built into the design of the training.

There will be opportunity throughout the training to link evidence to practice and look at how delegates may develop protective factors with clients to promote resilience, mitigate further ACEs and aim for recovery.

Please feel free contact us if you have any questions about this course.
