Childhood Trauma and Attachment Training

The Course

Our online Childhood Trauma and Attachment Training is designed to introduce carers to important childhood trauma theory. It is made up of four models.  Each session looks at a different important topic that will teach them about the brain, behaviour and development of the children they care for. These modules are designed to support carers in beginning to adopt a trauma-informed approach. This programme is full of ideas, strategies and advice that carers can take away and begin to implement straight away. With a therapeutic approach at its core, this is an essential course for anyone caring for vulnerable children and young people.

Underpinned by therapeutic approaches and full of advice and free resources. This session is essential for anyone working with vulnerable children and young people.
Attachment Disorder
Learn about attachment disorder and how it impacts a child or young person.  Find out how to identify attachment disorder and how it may impact the behaviour and thinking of those you care for. Learn to support them by ensuring you are not triggering attachment style behaviours that remind them of their trauma.

Therapeutic Response skills
Learn about how to develop therapeutic response skills with the children in your care.

The lessons in this module will begin to embed a therapeutic approach and help guide everyone working with the children toward an approach that puts mental health and wellbeing first. A very popular session which will change perceptions and offer a lot of ‘ah-ha’ moments.
Learn about the importance of boundaries and consistency when working with vulnerable children. Find out how to approach behavioural incidents whilst still maintaining a therapeutic approach based on connection. With specific approaches and advice for you to begin to implement in your school.
