Trauma Informed Practice

We have an excellent reputation nationally in respect of our trauma informed practice knowledge, support and training. For bespoke consultancy support around embedding see here


To provide a trauma-informed approach to children, young people and families professionals need to have an awareness and understanding of the impact of trauma and learn how to effectively minimise its effects without causing additional trauma.

We provide a range of bespoke training packages from a 1-day introduction to a 3-day programme and follow up workshops to ensure staff engage in programmes which best meet their level of responsibility for identifying and responding to the impact of trauma.  We draw on up to date evidence from research related to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's) and the impact of trauma and provide information on building trauma-informed systems, and support networks that address secondary/vicarious trauma for workers. 

Training and support will be tailored to local area need and offer staff resources and tools to build confidence to work with individuals and families alongside increasing their knowledge and understanding.  Training covers:

  • An understanding of Adverse Childhood Experiences – what they are and the impact
  • What is meant by the term “trauma” and how it affects the nervous system
  • How trauma symptoms may present
  • Exploring the four principles of TIP – Recognise, Respond, avoid Re traumatisation and building Resilience.
  • Learn about tools and techniques to support understanding trauma and respond
  • The principles of self-regulation and exercises that can promote this
  • Different ways of taking a trauma informed approach
  • How we manage the impact of supporting traumatised children/parents on our own well-being
  • Explore how trauma affects staff specifically considering compassion fatigue, secondary and vicarious stress
  • Understand secondary and vicarious trauma and how to respond to it and prevent it
  • Consider how to build resilience in ourselves and our team
  • Develop practice skills and techniques to come alongside the client in a trauma informed way

There will be practice in the training room with real case examples and we can also support with:

  • Action plans for self and service/setting
  • Methods to evaluate the implementation of Trauma Informed Practice
  • Informing and supporting the development of trauma informed policies, systems and approaches to build organisational and individual resilience.
