Event description

Description

Evolve Therapeutic Services is offering all interested parties the opportunity to participate in this introductory training on working with children who have experienced trauma.

Trauma Informed Care and Practice is, “a strengths-based framework grounded in an understanding of and responsiveness to the impact of trauma, that emphasises physical, psychological, and emotional safety for both providers and survivors, and that creates opportunities for survivors to rebuild a sense of control and empowerment." (Blue Knot Foundation 2016)

Evolve is offering a 2 day introductory workshop on understanding relational (complex) trauma and its application to working with children and young people. Participants will develop an understanding of the range of developmental impacts of trauma, and take home some practical strategies on how best to support children heal from these experiences, over time, in a range of contexts.
