Do you support the recovery of people affected by trauma?

If you are a worker who has a specific remit to respond to people known to be affected by trauma AND are required to provide advocacy support or psychological therapies or interventions OR are required to adapt the way you work to take into account trauma reactions to do your job well and reduce risk of retraumatisation OR are required to manage these services then you are likely to be working at a 'Trauma Enhanced' or 'Specialist' level. This type of practice is likely to require significantly more training to support and may require some background or pre-requisite knowledge and skills as part of planning to deliver services safely and effectively to people affected by trauma.

The NES Psychology team has developed training packages for staff working primarily in Health and Social care:

  • 'Safety & Stabilisation' is a 3 day training programme delivered by our trained trainers and designed to help staff understand and work with people who have been affected by trauma. This is delivered via our trained trainers, usually in health and social care settings
  • 'Survive & Thrive' is a 3 day training programme delivered via the NES Psychology trauma team designed to allow staff to facilitate a psychoeducational group for people who have been affected by trauma. 
  • You can find further information about our enhanced level training packages via this link (You will need to register with TURAS Learn to access the first of these resources, but anyone with an email address, no matter what their location or role is, can register free of charge.
