Making ongoing professional development simple

Learn with us in a new way

We have always worked hard to translate the evolving body of knowledge about the neuroscience of trauma, attachment and development into practical ways to support the vulnerable children, young people and families. For 30 years, we have provided training opportunities for professionals across a range of disciplines, including mental health, child protection, family support, out of home care, family violence, education, youth justice and many others.

We know just how important it is to understand and apply the principles relevant to trauma responsive practice for children and young people affected by significant abuse, violence and neglect.

So starting in 2020, we have taken a major leap into a new approach to make our training even more accessible to even more people. Because of support and sponsorship from a range of sources, we are in a position to make our workshops and online training more affordable than ever before. We want to see more children, young people and families benefit from practice that draws from the evidence associated with complex and developmental trauma.

It is the same great training that you have always come to expect from our therapeutic and training staff. But from now on, we have been able to significantly reduce our fees for much of our training, especially our workshops and seminars.

In addition, when you train with us, you will know that any surplus we achieve is reinvested to support our direct work with traumatized children and young people and our research activities aimed at building a local knowledge base about effective practice.
