Childhood adversity is so common that adopting a trauma-informed lens is a basic requirement of any healthy school and society. An increasing number of schools are now recognising that educators need to understand and adequately respond to children who have been exposed to traumatic experiences to mitigate the risks of negative outcomes across the lifespan.
The course introduces learners to the knowledge, theories and strategies that
underpin trauma-informed practice in schools. It will discuss what it really means to become ‘trauma-informed’, in the context of attachment theory and relationships. It will explore how the human stress-response system operates, enabling learners to recognise how traumatic stress can show up in school environments. The course offers a range of practical approaches and strategies framed by the ‘Respond with RESPECT’ model developed by Lucy Mannion of TINT Education. This model draws upon a range of theories and research within psychology and associated therapeutic disciplines (including occupational, speech and language and psychodynamic psychotherapies).
