Sold Out Understanding Trauma (Level 1)

Date & Time of Course

  •  23 February, 2024
     10:00 am - 3:30 pm


Navigating the complexities of trauma requires specific knowledge and skills.  The impact of trauma can significantly affect the emotions, behaviours, choices and outcomes of the individuals we work with.

Developing an awareness and understanding of trauma is the first step in being able to support clients and professionals to work in a safer and more psychologically-informed way.

This 1-day course will support you to recognise the principles and patterns of trauma.  Using a strengths-based structured framework, we will also consider ways to adapt practice, in order to support recovery, avoid re-triggering, and promote resilience.

The course will support you to:

  • develop your understanding of the principles and patterns of trauma
  • recognise different types and definitions
  • explore the possible causes of trauma
  • understand the signs, symptoms and effects
  • introduce the framework of trauma-informed practice
  • explore some foundational skills and approaches that can be beneficial when working with trauma
  • reflect on your learning and how this can be applied in your role

Please be aware that due to the sensitive nature of the topic there may be triggering or challenging conversations during the training.  Please be mindful of your needs before and during the course to ensure that your wellbeing is a priority. You will not be asked or required to discuss personal experiences and we invite everyone to consider their workload/personal commitments  following the course to allow time to transition back into practice appropriately.

Who should attend?

Suitable for all support staff and those working with complex needs.




This course will be delivered over 1 day on 23 February 2024. This online course will not be recorded.

I feel more confident defining what trauma is, what categories it is divided into, and learned more about different trauma symptoms and types of trauma responses.


This course is also available in-house, and prices start from £760 for up to 14 people. This can be a cost-effective way of training staff and can be tailored to best meet the needs of your organisation.
