Trauma Informed Practice Level 1 Workshop
Wed 3 October 2018, 09:30 – 16:30 BST
The workshop provides the baseline knowledge and skills required by all staff working in multi-agency settings. Health in Mind is a Trauma informed organisation, and as such this workshop is part of our Core Learning series and gives a foundation for all our staff and volunteers. The Transforming Trauma national training framework sets out 4 levels of training for different parts of the workforce, which begin with this level 1 awareness level.
This is part of a whole workforce development approach, as the framework sets out "It can be argued that those in most need may also be the hardest to reach and most unlikely to engage with services. We need to ensure the workforce understands these barriers and have effective strategies for overcoming them."
The workshop will enable staff and volunteers to:
- Learn about what Trauma is. Gaining an understanding of the definition and evidence base.
- Consider the effects and impact of trauma and resiliance in this context.
- Learn how to respond positively to support recovery and avoid re-traumatisation
- Understand the importance of self-care and support in the context of being part of trauma informed services.
Jean Budge has worked for Health in Mind’s Trauma Services for nine years, the last four as a supervisor. Trauma Services is a specialist service providing support to adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
