Engaging and Talking With Young People Who Have Experienced Trauma – DFFH East

Wednesday March 29, 2023, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Course Overview

This training provides guidance on understanding the range of impacts of adverse life experiences and trauma on young people.  It includes practical information about how to talk to young people and to raise ‘difficult issues’ that could result in their disengagement.  It focuses on how a practitioner can engage with a young person about their use of violence in the home.

This training highlights skills to focus on the resilience, strengths, and capabilities of young people in order to support them to overcome the impact of negative experiences and move forward in their journey.  It also highlights the importance of family work to address the impacts of relational trauma and to help the young person to sustain positive change.
