This is a practical ‘non-medical’ day for front line practitioners working with children and young people who have experienced serious trauma in their life. We work to strengthen understanding of children who have faced issues of trauma emerging from abuse, violence, loss and family breakdown.


This is a practical ‘non-medical’ day for front line practitioners working with children and young people with serious issues arising from trauma.

Drawing from the international research and literature and our own experience over many years as educational psychologists of the challenges of children with major social and emotional needs, we will explore together what the best practice can and could look like. We explore the language and key concepts of trauma and outline very practical classroom strategies.

We look at what Psychology may help us in our understanding of children who have faced trauma.

We explore the themes of:


Intrusive thoughts

Constricted lives

We look at triggers, self-regulation and unpack a range of strategies.

We explore what young people with these difficulties really need from us.

We also spend time looking at the emotional impact on practitioners working with children with such needs and what helps at a personal and team level.

We can all do something – we do not have to wait for expert therapists to arrive!

The course explores the questions:

  • What does it take for a child to:
  1. Feel safe and secure
  2. Mourn the past trauma
  3. Reconnect with ordinary relationships with children and adults?
  • How can we start to develop an understanding of traumatised children?
  • What is the true impact of trauma?
  • What else can we do to go about including high profile children or young people with challenging emotional needs?
  • What useful psychological constructs can we use to guide us?

This course also explores practical strategies, concepts and language for key adults rebuilding relationships with individual pupils.

This is a participative day that aims to be explorative and practical. Opportunities to develop empathy with the children of concern will be created.
