Trauma informed practice – Level 2


Please note this Course is delivered online via Google Meet – it is not necessary to have an account to join.

This training is designed for staff who have regular contact with children and/or families, including those working within adult services, or those who manage them.

The course covers the content of the first level of the National Psychological Trauma Training plan.  Content is adjusted according to the particular group attending to ensure it is relevant for their particular service context, and the Practice Model is used as a framework throughout. People who have attended equivalent trainings from NES or elsewhere may still find this of use as it connects the agenda to a Highland context.

It is also a foundation for more advanced learning available on the CPC calendar as a two part, Level 3 course – Simple & Complex Trauma, and ACEs and Developmental Trauma.  These cover the knowledge parts of levels 2 and 3 of the national framework.

What can I expect from this training?

By the end of this training, staff should:

  • Know how common trauma is and understand different types of trauma and their impact
  • Understand how people with traumatic memories experience situations, including how children of different ages present
  • Know how to respond to a known traumatic event, or to help people with the consequences of trauma even when the history is unknown
  • Connect trauma informed practice to their core roles and to the Practice Model
  • Have some ideas for self-care and reducing the impact of vicarious trauma

Who should attend?

All staff who have regular contact with children and young people and/or their family members should attend this training.

In particular those staff who:

  • Have day to day contact with children of any age and families
  • Carry out direct or indirect work with children and families
  • Provide specialist advice to those who work with children or families
  • Manage services that work with children and families
  • Develop policy and practice in organisations across the CPC partnership
