Understanding Trauma and Trauma-Informed Approaches | eLearning

4 modules



Course Length
135 mins




This eLearning programme seeks to bridge the gap between identifying and understanding trauma, and, responding with intelligence and compassion in a way that opens the door for recovery and a better way forward.

Designed for anyone providing care and support to someone affected by trauma, the four engaging and informative eLearning modules explore the fundamental concepts of trauma and how it affects the minds, emotions, lives and behaviours of people who experience it and those close to them.

Trauma can affect anyone. When a person lives with trauma their brain works differently and their behaviour changes, yet we as a society often respond in unhelpful ways.

This comprehensive programme provides a great starting point for those embarking on training and qualifications in trauma-informed approaches. It also provides a pragmatic, engaging and practical way for organisations to provide trauma-awareness training to their whole workforce.
