Event description
We care: a full-day training event focused on workforce wellbeing and trauma-sensitive care.

About this Event

We are delighted that Tony Bloemendaal, a fellow of the ChildTrauma Academy founded by world-renowned trauma expert Dr Bruce Perry and expert in trauma and neglect, will join us for this exciting trauma training event.

Tony will be joined by Dr Roland Verdouw, a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist who is also based in the Netherlands. Dr Verdouw became a Robin Fancourt Memorial Scholar with The ChildTrauma Academy in 2013.

We recognise that those who care for children and young people work within a stressed system. Without adequate support, those caring for young people who have experienced adversity, trauma and neglect can be affected by compassion fatigue, burnout and vicarious trauma.

This training event will look at how we can support frontline workers through ‘trauma-sensitive caregiving’, where we recognise the impact that our own life history and wellbeing can have on the children and young people we work with.

This learning will be invaluable to anyone with an interest in supporting frontline workers to who want to learn more about the impact of neglect and trauma, as well as improve their professional quality of life. This will, in turn, allow them to bring their ‘whole self’ to work and deliver the relationship-based practice we know is key to healing from trauma for young people.
