Understanding Trauma – Staff Training

NEW DATE – Sept 21st, 2016 – In Partnership with Pye Green Academy….

If you work in a school with children or young people then it is likely that some of them have experienced trauma…and may still be in a state of post traumatic stress, which will be affecting their ability to learn and their behaviour.

I have come to know a fair bit about trauma… through my therapeutic training and over 10 years experience, Masters research and real life lessons! From this combination of knowledge and real-lived experience I want to help more professionals understand how trauma impacts a child and what to do to help them.

Would it be helpful for your staff team to get some more understanding on what this all really means? To learn together about the impact traumatic experiences can have on children and what they can be doing to help these children have a better experience in school?

We have had extra special feedback from staff who have attended together and been able to reflect throughout the training what it means for their school / phase / year group…so you will notice schools wanting to send more than 1 person will receive better value all round. Bring a car load of staff, get a greater impact for your school AND get the bargain price. You will be so pleased you did. Crucial info is downloadable below.

PS They have a lovely hall – but it won’t fit everyone, so if you want to book places, best to get it done ASAP.

Course: Introduction to UNDERSTANDING TRAUMA for STAFF TEAMS

This training course can be tailored and delivered as an INSET session or twilight. It gives anyone working with children a great foundation of understanding trauma, the impact for children, insight into what life might be like in their shoes and how best to help them.

Many schools have appreciated learning this with SLT, teachers, LSAs, pastoral and other support staff together.
