“The training was absolutely fabulous. We see a huge value in becoming fully trauma-informed. It would be valuable to develop this across Croydon, it’s highly recommended.” (Patrick Shields, Headteacher, St Mary’s Catholic High School)



What is trauma?

Sometimes we find other peoples’ behaviour difficult to understand or respond to. Challenging behaviour can be frustrating and limiting for all concerned - while also draining resources.

Research shows us that aggression, anxiety, depression and many chronic health conditions can stem from past traumatic experiences.

Psychological trauma is what happens when a person’s stress response is overwhelmed by one or more distressing events or situations which have a lasting impact on the brain. We do not often talk about it, but we all know people who have experienced it.

Our training will give your staff the tools to respond more effectively to challenging behaviours caused by trauma, allowing you to address persistent issues sustainably, increase productivity and improve staff well-being.

"My priority was to lead the prevention of serious violence in London with a particular focus on knife, gun and gang-related violence. WAVE Trust played a key role throughout this period in developing understanding of both the causes of violence and the evidence-based approaches to tackling it." (Mike Taylor, Chief Superintendent and Head of Specialist Crime Reduction for the Metropolitan Police 2003-15)

"We're really excited about the future – since becoming trauma-informed, there's a widespread interest across the school in deepening their understanding.” (Serena Hemmings, Executive Headteacher, Castle Hill Academy)


Trauma-informed training

We train teams to understand and respond to the impacts of trauma on their team, clients and service users. Our course covers:

  • How the brain develops
  • What trauma is and how it affects people
  • How to recognise trauma in others and respond effectively
  • How to boost a person’s emotional resilience
  • How to build a more collaborative workplace with 21st Century science at its heart

Our training will give your staff the ability to apply this understanding to workplace issues and build up a toolkit of skills to respond more effectively to challenging behaviour.
