The PSTA seeks to bring together everything useful for public service transformation, so we list all events, news, and resources which we believe may be useful, alongside our own events and materials. Inclusion signals that we support the espoused purpose of the event or content and believe it is worth looking into, but is not a guarantee of quality.
Understanding and use of Trauma Informed Practice
February 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The Academy for Social Justice Commissioning is hosting a London Evening Seminar
Dr Kieran McCartan │ Professor of Criminology │ University of the West of England
Lisa Rowles │ Director of Innovation & Evidence│ Khulisa
(Plus pre-recorded input from a service user discussing their experiences and the role of trauma in their journey)
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.
Expert Practitioners and a former service-user will then discuss the real world challenges faced and what services need to be commissioned to increase the resilience and wellbeing of those affected..
PLEASE ALSO NOTE that you must be an Academy member in order to attend any events. Membership and services are free –register to join the Academy here.
