Trauma Informed Practice in Kent - October and November 2019

An invitation to attend a free half-day workshop to learn about trauma and how it impacts young people and those around them.


Developmental trauma limits a young person’s ability to regulate stress, impulse and shame. For these young people the world is a hostile and frightening place and they behave in ways that challenge, confuse, frustrate, threaten and even harm those around them.

This NHS funded initiative is led by the Kent Youth Justice and Early Help services. It forms part of the KCC and Academy of Public Health strategy to develop trauma-informed approaches in Kent. We aim to develop trauma informed practice across the county for practitioners and leaders working at the front line with children and young people.

The Workshop

This is a certificated workshop with optional follow-up e-learning exploring key issues in working with children and young people who are living with developmental trauma. Completion of the workshop and e-learning will provide participants with 13 hours of CPD.

This is an opportunity for us all to develop our knowledge and skills and find new ways of working together to impact positively on the life chances of the most vulnerable and traumatised children and young people in our communities.

If anyone working with adolescents from these districts wishes to apply for a place on a course, they should use the link in the flyer to book a place.

Places may be limited if demand is too high for the events.
