Description

The North Devon & Torridge Trauma Informed Conference

There is widespread agreement that experiences of adversity and trauma are prevalent within our society and have the potential to significantly affect the quality of a person’s life over the course of their lifetime. Research shows that childhood adversity and trauma can have a significant impact on a child’s ability to learn, to relate to others and to cope with stress.

Trauma is everybody’s business. Most people are likely to know or work with someone who has experienced trauma and adversity in their lives. Many of us have directly experienced trauma in our own lives.

When the work we do brings us into contact with people who are affected by trauma, there is an added responsibility to recognise this, adjust how we work to take account of the trauma, and respond in a way which supports recovery, does no harm and recognises the need that people have.

Importantly, there is general agreement that trauma informed systems rely on multi-agency partnerships and collaboration.

The North Devon & Torridge Trauma Informed Day aims to equip us all with the knowledge and skills to improve our practice in working with people who are likely to have experienced adverse childhood experiences.

Speakers on the day who are experienced in the field will cover
