Our work in partnership with school communities has a proven track record of supporting and developing education professionals skills and confidence in working with our most vulnerable students. Trauma-informed practice in schools empowers teachers and students with to co-create learning environments that meet everyone's needs.
As educators, we consistently work with children and young people who are managing the effects of their trauma in the everyday. Often we are the most consistent adults in their lives. We have the opportunity to support and promote healing through the way we develop relationships, the way we engage children and young people in their learning and through effective intervention in the Education environment. In order to be supported to provide this vital role, it is important to seek skills and strategies to ensure we can provide the most effective intervention within the context of our roles. To do this we need support, theory, strategies and practice. Utilising the knowledge of over 10 years experience in working with Education Departments across the country we can support your professional needs.
