This 2-day course is aimed at senior leaders in schools and educational settings, providing them with an understanding of the concept of becoming a trauma and mental health-informed organisation. It explores how senior leaders can support staff undergoing the diploma and subsequently implement trauma-informed strategies and interventions.

Additionally, the course offers an overview of our more in-depth 10-day module, Becoming a Trauma and Mental Health-Informed School.

What are the benefits of being a trauma-informed school or college?

Being a trauma-informed organisation helps students to feel safe, connected, emotionally regulated and ready to learn. The course equips teachers and practitioners with the necessary skills to facilitate this approach, thereby enhancing their own mental health and that of their colleagues.
