Trauma-informed practice training workshops

Thrive LDN is working with Nicola Lester Psychological Trauma Consultancy to offer free, pre-recorded Trauma-Informed Practice training workshops to support individuals and organisations.

The first in the series of three online recorded training workshops is comprised of an introduction followed by training on how trauma informed care changes, alters and transforms the way someone thinks and feels; how they engage with and experience the world around them.

At the silver level, we move beyond developing an awareness of the impact of trauma to thinking about how we ‘practice’ a trauma informed approach. This is broken down into two key areas; therapeutic skills for reconnection and creativity in trauma informed practice.

At the gold level, the focus shifts from individual practice to think about organisational practice. When we consider ‘trauma’, both in terms of its cause and effect, discussions of power should never be far behind.
