Trauma informed practice: a course for frontline workers

Course description

Trauma informed practice is a one day course for frontline workers who want to learn more about how to recognise and sensitively respond to people who have experienced trauma. In addition to exploring what a trauma informed approach looks like, you will have the opportunity to reflect on your practice. You will also take away some practical tools to help you respond in a more trauma informed way when working with service users.

AVA are running this course in partnership with Leeds City Council (Safer Leeds – Domestic Violence Team).

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand what a trauma informed approach is and why adopting this is good for service users.
  2. Understand how experiences of trauma affect people.
  3. Look at ways to improve safety and support planning.
  4. Think about the impact of working with people affected by trauma and to explore strategies for self-care.
  5. Reflect on current practice and create a personal action plan.
  6. Take away practical, adaptable tools that will help you to work in a trauma informed way.
