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.

Useful, but one section about the 11 year old boy and girl and how they would cope if bullied etc had many contradictory facts about the children.

Not very interesting, mostly common sense after working in an educational environment for 20 years.
