In becoming trauma-informed, you will learn to recognise the impact of trauma in those you work for and with, and to be able to practice in a way that does no further harm, supports recovery and is most effective and efficient for people affected by trauma.

You will understand the communication skills to take account of the impact of trauma in order to work effectively with colleagues including minimising the risks of traumatisation while also preserving your own wellbeing against vicarious trauma.
