Online Learning: An Introduction to Using Brain Science

We believe the ability to understand the impact of trauma is very important and poignant at the moment given the current situation.

This short, online learning course explains the concept of brain science and core brain development through simple and tested metaphors. You will learn the practical steps to take to support a child’s healthy brain development and adopt a common language to apply in every setting.

Increase your trauma sensitive understanding, boost your confidence and guide children through school during this unsettling time.
