This face2face event, presented by Paul Searle (Road Safety and Drug Education), will help teachers and student services staff gain a better understanding of trauma and its potential impacts on young people in a school context. 

By taking a Trauma Informed Care and Practice (TICP) approach, school staff will have a better understanding of how to create an environment that addresses the specific needs and sensitivities of students who have experienced trauma.

The workshop also examines the links between trauma and alcohol and other drugs (AOD). 

Additional Pre-reading course (1 hour) – There is a compulsory online pre-learning module to complete before taking part in this presentation.  When you register you will receive a calendar invite. You will also receive a CANVAS invite 7 days prior to the webinar.  At this time you can commence your online training. You can do it at your own pace as long as you finish it before the webinar.
