Code: LSC749 ESSCP: Trauma-Informed approaches to working with Families in a Multi Professional Context: Foundation Level

Trauma informed approaches are strength based and recognise that past experiences, relationships, intersectionality, and context affect current ways of being, relationships and interactions. The Trauma informed lens reframes behaviour that has been traditionally seen as “resistant, difficult, challenging or problematic” as individuals’ best attempts at coping and surviving. In this context it is understandably that the relationships practitioners build with people to promote safety, is emotional work, that inevitably impacts upon them.
