Understanding Trauma Advanced Training


To book a 'closed' training just for your team, please ring 0121 296 4448 or email solihull.approach@uhb.nhs.uk and we will create a bespoke order form for you. For individuals, please go to 'Book an individual training place'.

This is a Solihull Approach Advanced Training. You can use this training to create a Trauma Aware workforce and/or a Trauma Aware Community. It has been designed for both child practitioners and for practitioners who work with adults.

This is a 1 Day seminar on trauma. It can be used as a stand alone seminar, but it provides most value as a follow up to the 2 Day Foundation training to deepen knowledge and to keep moving theory into practice. If you are using this seminar to create a Trauma Aware school, then it should be used after the Whole School Training.

The training requires a supporting information booklet for each delegate (£8 each). .

You can run this seminar in your local area. If you want to observe the seminar before running it yourself, you can ask us to run it for you in your local area. The course is also available online.

This seminar is designed to consolidate learning from the 2 Day Foundation, but will provide the best value as part of a theory into practice strategy that includes work discussion time and the Solihull Approach Advanced Trainings: the Refresher Day and the seminars on brain development and attachment. This Understanding Trauma seminar links trauma to the Solihull Approach model, brain development, attachment and epigenetics so that the seminars link together.

Understanding Trauma Advanced Training is also available as an online course. It covers the same content and is also available on a Multi User Licence for hundreds of practitioners in an area. Please ring or email the office for more details.
