Trauma - Impact on Young People
Date & Time:
If this is a virtual course a link will be sent to you prior to the course start date from the trainer (NWG).
Target Group 3/4 Health 3
This course is targeted to multi agency professionals who work directly with, or supervise those, who work directly with exploited children and young people. This training is particularly relevant for: children and family social workers, police officers and CSE coordinators, head teachers, safeguarding leads, children’s home or residential care staff, specialist voluntary sector workers and health sector staff including nurse’s with safeguarding lead responsibilities.
The aim of the course is to develop our understanding around how trauma can manifest physically and emotionally. The day will look at the impact trauma can have on young people who have experienced exploitation including on the development of their brain. The course aims to provide delegates with practical strategies that they can use to support young people they are working alongside and how they can support themselves from the impact of their work.
Outcomes for today
- Understand how the brain develops through childhood into adolescence and ways in which our experiences impact on development.
- Identify ways in which we may define trauma and what a traumatic event may be.
- Determine the different ways in which trauma can manifest including physically and emotionally and the impact this can have.
- Consider ways in which our window of tolerance can be unsettled and how we can support ourselves and others to regain balance.
- Consider and reflect on the ways in which you may develop your practice and service provision to meet the needs of young people affected by trauma
BSCP Instructions to Delegates Attending Face to Face Training:
For our socially distanced face to face courses…
- Please follow social distancing guidelines when attending the venue and show consideration for your fellow delegates.
- If you would like to, feel free to wear a mask for your own protection. When doing so please make a conscious effort to communicate clearly when you are sharing in group discussions, and bear in mind that much of your natural facial expressions will be hidden from the Trainer and fellow delegates.
- Please note that refreshments will most likely NOT be available during these courses and so we encourage you to bring your flasks for hot drinks and snacks with you for breaktimes. As usual, it’s important to plan well if you want to leave the venue at lunch time to purchase food.
For our virtual courses…
- Virtual Courses will take place via Microsoft Teams and - to a lesser extent – Zoom.
- Please read the course information, confirmations and any follow up emails carefully during and after your booking process, and follow the instructions for receiving or locating the link to the course. Virtual courses have been re-designed from their usual face to face format, and so some alterations such as the requirement to complete pre-course work (in some instances) are in place for you.
- If your organisation allows it, Microsoft Teams should be downloaded on your device and you should know how to use it prior to training.
- For staff who cannot download Zoom (eg Birmingham Children’s Trust Staff), it will not be necessary to download the Zoom program in order to attend the virtual session.”
