The effects of trauma, neglect and past experiences can be evidenced in a wide range of destructive and challenging behaviours.  Developing your knowledge and understanding of trauma is the first step in being able to support your clients in a safer and more psychologically informed way.

This introductory level course will introduce you to the key concepts and principles of trauma (Type l), complex trauma (Type ll) and trauma-informed care.  Through experiential learning the course will explore the physiological and psychological effects of trauma on a person’s behaviour, their social wellbeing and their ability to form healthy attachments and relationships.

You will be encouraged to share your work experiences and reflect on the potential challenges of working with trauma and how your own client relationships may be affected.

This course will be delivered online over 2 sessions and we ask that you are able to commit to both dates if booking. 

This course will enable you to:

  • recognise the common causes, symptoms and effects of trauma and complex trauma
  • be aware of the differences between trauma (type I) & complex trauma (type II)
  • understand the basic physiology of the brain and its role in trauma
  • understand the impact of trauma on emotional, psychological and social wellbeing – attachment and forming healthy relationships
  • understand the aims of trauma-informed practice and the importance of working safely
  • offer basic practical support to clients and be able to offer four safety and stabilisation techniques 

Who should attend?

This is an introductory level course which will focus on developing your ‘knowledge and understanding’. It is suitable for all staff supporting vulnerable adults and working with complex needs.

Please note that BHT Training will be running Trauma & Complex PTSD (Level 2) on 1 & 4 March 2021 which will cover the more practical approaches and strategies.




This course will be delivered over 2 sessions:  1 & 4 February 2021.

Attendance on both sessions is required.  This online course will not be recorded.



Due to the sensitive nature of this training course you may find some of the content upsetting if it relates to personal experiences.  Please ensure that you are aware of the course content and learning objectives beforehand so that you are emotionally prepared for the day.  The focus of the course will be on professionals supporting clients and there is no requirement for participants to share personal experiences.


The trainer created an incredibly comfortable and welcoming atmosphere in which I never felt unable to ask questions or have discussions.



This course is also available in-house.  Prices start from £675 for up to 14 people to be delivered online. This can be a cost-effective way of training staff and can be tailored to best meet the needs of your organisation.
