About this event:


For a school to be truly 'trauma informed' the right training needs to be accessed that goes beyond looking at A.C.Es and how these present and are assessed. A deeper understanding of dissociation and the causes of it are necessary.

We need to be able to view the child's behaviour within the context of the relationship and as a form of communication.

It is hard to know how to support a child who has been through either sexual, physical or emotional abuse?

Teaching assistants are the bedrock of implementing true trauma informed practice in the classroom. This workshop covers the following

  • Why do children dissociate?

  • How to recognize dissociation in a child ?

  • What type of situation and actions may increase dissociation in an educational setting?

  • How do you provide safety and help regulate the child again?

  • How to deal with 'naughty' behaviour .

  • Why relationships and friendships provide such difficult problems and what teaching staff can do to help?
