My Forever Family Trauma Training

The Australian Childhood Foundation is pleased to be partnering with My Forever Family to provide this online trauma training program.  This training has been designed for carers to explore some of the core theories of trauma and its impacts and then translating that knowledge into practical strategies and approaches to providing trauma informed care.  This training is designed as a starting point for learning and/or a reinforcement of what you already know and what you already do in your care for children and young people across New South Wales.

Learning outcomes:
It is expected that by completing the course you will:
  • develop an enhanced understanding of complex abuse related trauma, with a particular focus on its effects on brain functioning
  • apply a framework for assessing the impact of complex abuse related trauma on children and young people
  • build on your current skills to apply key models of intervention which promote recovery for traumatised children and young people in out of home care
  • consider how else you can be supported in your care of traumatised children and young people.
Who can access this training?
This training program is only available to carers and other key professionals in New South Wales.
