Understanding Trauma Foundation Level- Derby
This training is CPD Accredited
The aim of this foundation course is for practitioners to gain a more in depth understanding of trauma and the impact it has on the lives of children and young people. The course will take delegates through a journey on how the brain develops during childhood and the importance of understanding this process for our working practice. There will be a focus on how trauma manifests and the ways in which we cope with trauma. In gaining a more in depth understanding of trauma and the impact it has on the lives of children and young people, practitioners will better equipped to offer effective support.
This foundation course is aimed at multi agency practitioners from a variety sectors and roles who are involved in supporting children, young people and their families in the field of child sexual abuse and exploitation.
The course facilitator will be the NWG Trainer, Sarah Brown.
Since gaining a degree in Youth Studies from Nottingham Trent University Sarah has worked within a variety of backgrounds supporting vulnerable young people and their families, including the role of a Pastoral Manager in a secondary school and as a Family Resource Worker.
After volunteering as a counsellor for several years at ChildLine, Sarah was employed as a supervisor.
It was at ChildLine she developed her child centred, trauma informed approach to working alongside young people. She worked to increase the skills, knowledge and empathy of volunteers in areas such as bullying, abuse, neglect, domestic violence, self-harm and suicide to ensure young people received the best possible support available. Sarah's time at Childline also involved managing and assessing both safeguarding issues and immediate life threatening situations presented by young people within the counselling room.
Sarah is passionate about the way in which we support young people and the need for services and practitioners to recognise and understand how trauma impacts on young people and how we can offer more effective support based on an increased level of understanding.
