Understanding Trauma


If we encounter a deeply distressing or disturbing experience this can cause a traumatic response within the body. Understanding how trauma can develop and progress over time allows us to understand more about helping those who have experienced a traumatic event.

This module explores what trauma is and they ways it can impact someone. Learners will also be able to explore different techniques and suggestions on how to support someone in the moment of feeling trauma but also over a longer period of time. The 5 different learning sections act as individual nuggets of information which can be downloaded and used individually or as part of the whole module. These learning assets can be used to create larger learning and development programmes.
