Event description
Developmental Trauma is typified by children who have experienced repeated trauma, such as neglect and abuse and a failure of their primary caregivers to protect them.

Developmental Trauma is known to impact upon a child’s neurological, physiological, cognitive, relational and affective development.

Research evidence and professional experience highlights that these young people are the most vulnerable in our schools. National statistics show that they are at increased risk of educational failure, mental health difficulties and being permanently excluded from school.

The DfE, Ofsted and NICE guidance strongly advocate that education staff have an understanding of children who have experienced Developmental Trauma and how to meet their needs.

This four session course will run over the Summer term 2021 and will equip delegates with this knowledge. Please note PARTICIPANTS MUST ATTEND ALL 4 SESSIONS.

This course will be of particular interest to those staff working with vulnerable children who are presenting with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs. More than one staff member per school/setting welcomed.
