For practitioners to be effective supporting people who have been traumatised, they first need to fully understand the impact that trauma has and how it manifests in their behaviour.
With experience in secondary, primary and special schools, we can work with authorities to create an ethos that includes mental health promotion and mental illness prevention. We are able to work with commissioners to develop creative solutions that address key priorities for children and young peoples’ mental health in schools and young peoples’ organisations.
We apply evidence-based approaches to improving wellbeing, resilience and mental health within staff training, school transformation, and peer-support programmes specifically linked to the impact of trauma in childhood.
We can support commissioners to meet key priorities in areas including children and young people’s mental health, whole school trauma informed practice, children’s sector workforce development, and reducing mental health stigma.
Duration: 1 or 2 Day
Many authorities are embracing a trauma aware approach to public health. We see an opportunity to work collaboratively, giving schools and organisations the knowledge to support children by also being trauma aware. This joined up working can only benefit the futures of all children but most importantly, the most vulnerable children in our communities. As part of a collaborative approach we can help facilitate improved communication between all interested parties so that a focused message can be delivered.
Note: Bespoke training also available including courses for pastoral and SEND teams.
Parents are key to supporting their child’s wellbeing and, together with education, they can ensure they stand the best life chances. Our workshops offer opportunities to inform and upskill parents in trauma awareness and mental health issues in children. We can explore strategies to manage issues such as anxiety and resilience referred by children’s services.
