London evening seminar on the understanding and use of Trauma Informed Practice
February 13 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Academy for Social Justice Commissioning is pleased to announce an evening seminar to be held in London on Wednesday 13th February 2019 on the topic of the understanding and use of Trauma Informed Practice.
Experience of trauma, especially psychological and emotional, is universal and impacts on all areas of human functioning, including physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing. Trauma is often an “underlying” condition informing other problematic presentations, (e.g. drug/alcohol misuse/difficult behaviours). Trauma-informed practice builds on the foundation of awareness, understanding and responsiveness to the impact of traumatic events in the lives of both service users and professionals.
This free seminar will offer an overview of current national and international research on adverse childhood experiences, trauma and problematic experiences, plus valuable insights from the following:
- Dr Kieran McCartan — Professor of Criminology, University of the West of England
- Lisa Rowles — Director of Innovation & Evidence, Khulisa
- Pre-recorded input from a service user discussing their experiences and the role of trauma in their journey
This event will be held at the Ministry of Justice HQ (see map below) from 17.30 to 19.30 on 13th February 2019. To request your free seminar place please book here, but note that you must be an Academy member in order to attend any events. Membership and services are free, however; register to join the Academy here.
