Psychological trauma is a major public health issue affecting the health of people, families and communities. Recent evidence from the Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) studies clearly shows the enormous burdens that trauma places not only on mental health services but also across social care, physical health, and justice provision.Trauma Informed Practice is designed to help staff at all levels working in Health and Social Care to engage clients whose background of traumatic experiences may be impacting on their successful use of services. Trauma Informed Practice is not specifically designed to treat trauma related difficulties, instead it seeks to address the barriers that those affected by trauma can experience while accessing the care, support and treatment they require for a healthy life. Those most in need may also be hardest to reach and most unlikely to engage with services. Trauma Informed Practice is aimed at supporting staff to provide the best services possible across Health and Social Care.
AIMS OF THE TRAINING
This Trauma Skilled training will provide an overview of types of trauma, abuse, neglect and adversity and the impacts these can have on individuals across the life course. It will explore the impact of trauma on stress management abilities, behaviours aimed at managing the effects of trauma, and the impact on interpersonal functioning and relationships. It will relate these issues to the functioning of trauma informed and non-trauma informed services in physical health, mental health, and social care sectors. Participants will be supported to:•Develop an understanding of the prevelance and wide ranging effects of trauma•Recognise how histories of trauma can result in a range of feelings and behaviours in both clients and staff when dealing with care and support services•Develop skills in recognising trauma related behaviours and adapting working practices for both staff and clients to support engagement of those with trauma histories
All staff who have direct or regular contact with adults or children who may be affected by trauma (even if this is not known about). This level of training will be relevant to most staff delivering care across statutory services, health and social care, justice, emergency services and third sector organisations. Job roles may include GP’s, teachers, nurses, dentists, dental technicians, learning support staff, accident & emergency workers, nursery staff, police officers, sports club coaches, housing workers, care workers, service managers.
