Trauma Informed Practice Workshop


Why should you be a Trauma Informed Organisation?


“Trauma is an experience that induces an abnormally intense and prolonged stress response”

(Perry, 2002, 2006)


Children who have been impacted by trauma base their unconscious responses on their previous traumatic experiences, organising their behaviour around avoidance techniques. This can be difficult to understand in a school or office environment when other students or staff are in the same location.


The Program Provides:

  • An understanding of the impact of Trauma

  • Allows staff and teachers to recognise symptoms before a child or person gets to the “outburst stage”

  • Helps a child recognise their physiological symptoms are connected to their emotional feelings

  • Encourages consistency to allow the child/person feel “safer” without feeling “threatened”

  • Hands on skills and strategies to work with Trauma informed Practices.


“The more we understand the impact of traumatic experiences on children the more compassionate and wise we can be in helping them” (Perry, 2002)
