Thrive LDN is working with community organisations to support the mental health needs of Hongkongers arriving in London.

As part of this work, Thrive LDN has partnered with The Nelson Trust to deliver free-to-attend online trauma-informed training.

The purpose of this training is to support those in the health and care sector, voluntary and community sector, and education sector interacting with London Hongkongers to provide trauma-informed and culturally competent care.

While this training will be focused on Hongkongers, it is expected to have value for the wider refugee and asylum-seeking community. 

About the training

  • A total of nine sessions are planned and limited to 35 participants per session. Participants only need to attend one session relevant to their sector.  
  • Each training session will be held online beginning at 9.30am and ending by 4.30pm. There will be breaks throughout the day, including 45 minutes for lunch.
  • Participants are encouraged to attend the full session.

Each online session will include:

  • Understanding of the dynamics of trauma and ACEs.
  • Recognising behaviours as coping strategies.
  • Understanding threat systems and responses.
  • Understanding of trauma and its impact in relation to Hongkongers living in UK.
  • How to communicate in a trauma informed way, fostering the five core principles of trauma informed approaches: Safety, Choice, Trustworthiness, Collaboration and Empowerment
  • Self-Assessment tool kit
