Using brain science to help families thrive

Trauma Sensitive Workforce

Train your workforce and community to understand Adverse Child Experiences, early life trauma and the resulting behaviours of children, young people and their families.

A high number of children have experienced toxic stress and as a result have poor executive functioning; affecting their decision making. Every aspect of service delivery benefits from a trauma sensitive approach and training, support and education around this a whole community responsibility.

We will work with you to develop a culture of understanding not only with your own staff but also with senior council figures, health professionals, local schools, nursery settings, community leaders and parents. The programme will give you a full understanding of the impact of early life trauma and how it effects the brain helps us understand many of the behaviours of children in need, young people and families and the possible long-term health issues affecting them.

  • Use your new awareness to address the cause - not just the presenting problem - of negative behaviour and tip young people’s scale of resilience in a positive direction.
  • Use a trauma sensitive approach as part of a systemic recognition that positive outcomes rely on a whole family dynamic.
  • Break the cycle of parental ACEs and trauma (and the resulting behaviours) being passed on to their children and their children’s children.

What does it include?

Training is bespoke to the need of each region and community and ranges from presentations to online certification. By helping staff and communities understand why families, children and young people present dysfunctional behaviour, from a neuroscience perspective, we can shift the dynamic from crisis to prevention.
