Cybertrauma is any trauma that a person suffers through or via digital devices or online spaces. For young people the prevalence of online abuse and harm is increasing alongside the complexities of the issues they face. Often the parents/carers of and professionals working with these young people are unaware of these issues or feel their children know more about technology than they do and this course can help you gain the knowledge needed to close that gap

Here is a link to a blog originally written for therapists and is one to consider before attending training to open your mind to the ideas of the day
