There is a growing acknowledgement of the role of adverse childhood experiences and traumatic stress in poor mental health, harmful behaviour and health difficulties. While this appreciation is positive, there has been less focus on how workers can meaningfully respond to this.
This event will focus on the practical and pragmatic implications for workers and services by;
- explaining how adversity contributes to difficulties
- exploring how services and individual workers can respond
- providing practical and tangible actions and strategies to implement
- enabling multi-disciplinary discussion and interaction
It will provide perspectives from a range of mental health roles and comment on the implications of settings including education, care and the community.
This course will be valuable for those supporting children and young people who have experienced adversity and trauma, who work in education, residential care, foster care, social services and health services and others with an interest in trauma are welcome to attend.
