An Introduction to Psychological Trauma | Children & Young People | eLearning

Course Overview - Duration circa 90 minutes

Supporting children and young people with psychological trauma is a reality for people working in health, social care and education settings. Yet few are empowered with the right knowledge to support them as they work through this complex part of their roles..

This eLearning programme provides a rich understanding of psychological trauma, covering:

  • The nature of trauma, its major forms, and its causes  
  • An understanding of how trauma affects the workings of the brain and the body 
  • The effects of trauma on immediate behaviour and moods and long-term mental and physical health 
  • The importance of resilience, and its potential to mitigate trauma’s effects

This training provides a broad overview of these topics and is designed for anyone providing care and support to children and young people affected by trauma - no prior knowledge or experience is required.

This comprehensive programme provides a great starting point for those embarking on training and qualifications in trauma-informed approaches. It also provides a pragmatic, engaging and practical way for organisations to provide trauma-awareness training to their whole workforce.

This eLearning forms part of TAG’s suite of tools and resources to help organisations become trauma informed. A separate eLearning programme is also available for those working with adults.

Very straight forward e-learning, simple and easy to move through. There were stages when I wanted to go back and reread something at the end of the unit and could only go back to the last activity.

Great learning apart from the 1-10 scales for resilience

An excellent introduction to trauma. The exercise with the scaling of 1 to 10 was not straight forward and too specific, but that is a technicality. I like the scenarios to get us thinking about potential real-life events. The link to resilience and how we think about resilience was also great. Having an understanding that a young person might appear to be resilient to a stressful situation only due to their significant history of trauma, does make us think more deeply about what is going on for the young person. Thank you. :-)
