Trauma Training

Our trauma-based training helps to incorporate trauma-informed care into service design and delivery.

The training is suitable for front line staff, including clinicians, carers, foster carers and social care staff. It will also be useful for service managers in incorporating trauma-informed principles into the design of their service.

Research on Adverse Childhood Experiences and Trauma-Informed Care is highlighting that we need to rethink many of the assumptions that are embedded in the design and delivery of care services.

Below is a selection of trauma-informed training that we can offer. We can tailor any training to suit your needs. All training is designed and delivered by an experienced mental health professional and ex-foster carer.
