20TRA121 Trauma Sensitive and Informed Teacher and SNA Training




 Trauma Informed Teaching 

Saturday 15th of February, 29th of February and the 21st of March 10am - 3pm.

Lunch will be provided on each day. The fee is non refundable or transferrable. If the minimum number of teachers for the course to run isn't reached (10) you will be refunded in full.

If children feel safe and connected to their teachers, they will be able to learn and cope better at school.

This program is a new experiential program that has been developed to support teachers & SNAs to create an environment in their classrooms where children who have experienced trauma can learn to connect better to safe adults, build friendships and reach their full potential.

This program takes place over 3 days training and full attendance is compulsory. Your time with a child over a school year can last a life time and set seeds for that child to believe they matter, ask for help and blossom like all children should.

Teacher- I am a trauma informed teacher”

Child- “My teacher understands me and cares"

This course will provide an overview of the impact of trauma on students and explore how adverse life experiences can impact on their behaviour in the classroom.

Learning objectives:

  • Exploring the impact of trauma on the developing brain.
  • The prevalence of trauma exposure in our schools and the need to be trauma informed.
  • Gaining an understanding of trauma and how children experience trauma.
  • Trauma-sensitive practices and interventions to address the impact of trauma on children and how to increase their ability to succeed in school.

Training in trauma-informed teaching helps your students feel safe. Children who have experienced trauma have challenges with self-regulation and with learning. Frustrations can mask symptoms and causing children to act out. As a trauma informed teacher you will start to create change in your school and support the children who have experienced trauma.
