Managing the Secondary Effects of Working with VAWG (CPD Accredited)

This course is designed to help professionals understand and identify vicarious trauma - the dynamics and psychological issues arising from work with victims of violence. Support is given to address the issues with the client and to promote strategies for self-care, highlighting the appropriate use of supervision and debriefing. It provides an opportunity to recognise and celebrate achievements and reflect on challenges met at a personal and professional level.

Complicated Matters: The Links Between Experiences of Domestic & Sexual Violence, Substance Use and Mental Ill-Health (CPD Accredited)

Domestic and sexual violence, substance use and mental ill-health are three issues which often co-exist. And when they do, things can become complicated. This training is designed to ‘uncomplicate’ matters by raising awareness about how the three issues intersect and offer effective ways to engage with individuals and families who are affected by these issues.

Becoming Trauma Informed: A Training Course for Managers (CPD Accredited)

The need for services to be trauma-informed is increasingly well understood, but what does it actually mean in practice? This one-day course on becoming trauma-informed is aimed at managers who are responsible for the design and delivery of health and social care services. Beyond providing an understanding of how to recognise and sensitively respond to the effects of trauma, the course employs a range of management tools to review current practice and create a plan for introducing a trauma-informed ethos to your service(s).
