This one day course will help professionals to understand the key aspects of a trauma informed approach and provides knowledge and tools that will help learners to enhance their practice when working with clients who experience multiple disadvantage.

This course will give learners an opportunity to explore the links between violence and abuse, problematic substance use and mental health. Learners will reflect on their own practice and take away an individual action plan for developing their work with this client group.

This training session provides an inter-sectional look at the issues faced by this client group and uses the experiences of women to highlight how services and professionals can help.

  • Understand the term multiple disadvantage and have explored links between experiences of violence and abuse, mental ill-health and substance use

  • Understand trauma and how experiences of trauma impact people

  • Understand the link b/w early experiences of trauma & the development of emotional regulation

  • Learn tools to manage high levels of emotion (i.e. anxiety, rage)

  • Consider the impact of working with people who have experienced trauma on workers and consider how to keep themselves healthy
