Using Trauma Specific Language & Approaches when Working with Children and Young People
This interactive eLearning course will engage TEI practitioners into critical reflection of how current systems and approaches pathologise children and may discount children’s experiences of abuse, neglect, and suffering.
The medicalisation of trauma and behaviour can cause us to overlook what children need for healing and recovery. This course will explore the adverse impacts of solely holding medical or behavioural paradigms when working with children who experience trauma and mental health difficulties, and the need to apply a critical perspective.
The content will also focus on taking a dive into linguistics and will unveil children’s underlying needs for safety and connection.
