What is trauma?

Most of us sometimes find other peoples’ behaviour difficult to understand or respond to. Often these encounters can be frustrating and draining for all concerned - while also draining resources.

Aggression, anxiety, challenging behaviour, mental health issues and many chronic health conditions can all stem from past traumatic experiences.

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

Our training gives your staff the tools to respond more effectively to the challenging behaviour trauma can cause, allowing you to increase workplace effectiveness, productivity and well-being as a result.
