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.
This 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 for trauma and mental health without 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.
