The Part 2 Trauma Informed Care workshop builds on the knowledge acquired within the Part 1 session. Participants will already possess knowledge and understanding of how trauma and attachment histories can alter the brain and how it can impact normative child development and adult functioning. In this Part 2 workshop, participants will examine what steps an agency needs to implement in order to be considered “Trauma Informed”. You will learn how to design interventions that will be more effective with trauma based behaviour, learn to identify and consider sensorial based reactivity, communication and language styles and body language when determining how to respond to behaviour. We will address the potential impact of personal histories, issues of self-awareness and models for supervising and supporting those who work with traumatized populations.



  • Recommended participants attend Trauma Informed Care Part I.
  • You must be prompt and present for the course. Any time missed will result in certificates not being issued.
