What is Trauma Informed Practice?

Although exposure to a traumatic event will result in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for just a quarter of individuals, multiple adversities and sustained exposure will leave many with fearful responses and preoccupations across the lifespan. Early childhood adversities of abuse and neglect are associated with long term psychological and some physical health problems, as well as problems with trust which may limit how they can use services designed to help them, or to enjoy rewarding lives.

Adverse experiences in adulthood too, including domestic abuse, combat and torture, and grief and loss, can also be the origin of such difficulties. We would like to reach as many of you as possible in ways you find most useful for development. If you could spare 5 minutes or less of your time to complete the survey we would be grateful.

You could also WIN a free professional development book to help boost your understanding of trauma informed practice!
