This training has been designed for educators and teachers who are supporting vulnerable children and families who have been exposed to trauma, and provides all the crucial information required to engage traumatised children and provide them with the experiences they require to heal and develop.

You will gain an in-depth understanding of how to support children with a history of relational trauma or attachment disruption. Supporting maltreated children can be challenging, confusing and even demoralising, particularly if you are unable to make sense of their behaviour and depersonalise it.

 This workshop provides participants with a neuroscience-based framework for reinterpreting children’s emotional and behavioural issues and allows participants to make sense of complex behaviour in the context of trauma, attachment issues, and cognitive skill deficits.

This training aims to simplify contemporary research, and through integration with practice wisdom, provide real hands-on strategies for supporting children’s recovery, and repairing their capacity to regulate emotions, experience empathy and trust others.
