NSCP When We Are Scared: An Introduction to Trauma Level 3

This two hour virtual training event offers an introduction to trauma. The session will start with an exploration of our human need for safety and what happens when we are not (or do not feel) safe. It  will then look at definitions of trauma and think about different contexts where trauma might be found. It will consider how humans adapt to cope with traumatic experiences, recognising that these are protective reactions. Throughout, it will think about the importance of connection and relationships and why these are so important in recovery from trauma. 


  • Developing an understanding of different definitions of trauma and contexts where it might occur 
  • Finding out about the potential effects of trauma on individuals and communities 
  • Understanding how trauma can impact the developing child 
  • Developing knowledge of what protects us and what helps when we have experienced trauma 

When: Tuesday 14 November 2023, 9.30am to 11.30am
