Anyone with an interest in exploring a different way of working with adults and children who have been abused or traumatised. Members of the public, professionals and volunteers are welcome, but the course talks specifically about practice and support roles.
An introductory, bite-sized course on this topic is also available; it takes about 2 hours to complete.
Our learners say:
The course has highlighted how policies and procedures, alongside research which is taken out of context, can be damaging to an individual, and may mean we lose sight of them as a person if they are in danger of becoming a statistic.
The video on ACEs was eye opening, and although I’ve never seen the benefit of making assumptions about another human, I am horrified that some agencies have taken this as a predictive model. The discussions on models in general was also important, because it highlighted that humans aren’t a one size fits all. It’s validating to know that so much of how I work is already trauma informed but I know I can still do better, especially if it means challenging others in their practice too. Thank you.
Overall, the course has been able to meet with me both personally and professionally. It has extreme value to all areas of my life and I would highly recommend it. It has definitely made a positive impact. There has been much learning and reflection that has taken place which will enable me to become a better trauma informed practitioner and also more kind to myself in my own process.
