Online Training Course

Trauma Responsive Practice in Education - Online Training

What is the online course about?

These eleven module self-paced anytime learning programs provide an overview of the neurobiology of trauma as well as a framework for effectively responding to children and young people who have experienced trauma. This foundational knowledge program looks at trauma responsive practice for children and young people as they learn and grow. These programs have been developed using the wisdom and background of the highly popular and well-evaluated SMART online training and Making SPACE for Learning Programs that the Foundation has been running for schools and education systems nationally for 20 years.

What will Trauma Responsive Practice teach me?

  • a summary of the knowledge and evidence base about trauma and its impact on child development
  • principles of trauma responsive practice
  • creative and practical strategies that support the recovery of children and young people from trauma
  • how to make sure that risks to children and young people are considered within trauma responsive practice
  • ways to collaborate with others to maximise the impact of the support provided to vulnerable children and young people.

This training has been contextualised to professionals who work in schools and early years settings. It has practical strategies that support vulnerable students to learn, adapt and grow. It deals with specific behaviours that disrupt students’ capacity to use relationships around them to help them focus, remember, engage socially and process tasks. It will strengthen the skills and confidence of individuals in these contexts to positively respond to students’ trauma based needs and behavioural expressions.
