Course Summary

More than one in three children and young people are exposed to at least one potentially traumatic event by age 18. *

Trauma-informed approaches enable services to recognise the presence of trauma and acknowledge its widespread impact, whilst seeking to avoid re-traumatisation.

Attend Westminster Insight’s one-day interactive online workshop to learn how to implement a successful trauma-informed approach for children and young people to reduce the negative impact of childhood adversities and support child and adult mental health outcomes.

This practical course will cover what trauma-informed care looks like and why it is important? Through interactive sessions understand how you can effectively respond to those suffering from trauma. Attend this course to learn how to identify the symptoms of trauma and provide appropriate support. Gain skills to communicate with young people who are affected by trauma and tailor interventions to meet their individual needs.

Our expert trainers, Dr Kirsty Hughes, Clinical Director for Beyond Psychology, and Hannah Waugh, will share best practice to help you to advance your approach to trauma-informed care. Take part in interactive sessions that will enable you to relate and resonate with people who have experienced trauma.
