Trauma Informed Practice Webinar

Course Title:
Trauma Informed Practice Webinar
Course Code:

Trauma informed practice means being aware of how trauma has affected young children; how they are often labelled and what we might do to within the healing process. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, childhood trauma is defined as: “the experience of an event by a child that is emotionally painful or distressing, which often results in lasting mental health and physical affects: - such as abuse, neglect, separation and death of a loved one.

We are only just beginning to really understand the impact of trauma and how to work with it – so often it’s easier to label a child, such as difficult, disengaged, manipulative etc. rather than understand the story behind it.

Research shows that for some people, suffering from 3 or more traumas in our early childhood years can affect their mental health if unprocessed.  It also suggests that it can affect our physical health, how long we live, and some research suggests that it can even affect our DNA, how it is read and transcribed.

This half day webinar will develop your understanding thinking about Trauma Informed Practice in its widest sense, not just thinking about those children and young people who have been given a diagnosis of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), as there are many who don’t reach that threshold, but those who also need our understanding for example those with Developmental or Complex trauma

By the end of the session you will have:

·         Considered PTSD – what it is and how trauma can be identified when working with children

·         Have learnt about some trauma informed techniques to use as part of direct work with children and families

·         Developed an understanding of vicarious trauma and how working with trauma can affect us

The webinar will be highly interactive, and informed by up to date law, guidance, theory, research, and case material.
