Let's start adding new skills, training, and qualifications to your skillset
Learn with us
Each year, we deliver hundreds of trauma-informed professional development opportunities within our partnerships and in our training calendar; from workshops and webinars to speaker tours, courses and conferences. We work hard to translate the ever-growing body of trauma research and make it easy to apply to work on the ground.
When it comes to personal or workforce professional development, we fully appreciate that those in our sector have a wide variety of quality professional development providers to choose from. When you choose us to facilitate your learning, any surplus that results is reinvested to support our direct work with children and young people and our research activities aimed at building a local knowledge base about effective practice.

The Heart of Trauma: Healing our Embodied Brains in the Context of Relationships
This workshop is built on two fundamental ideas and practices to embody them. The first is that psychological, emotional safety is the foundation for healing embedded traumas.
