Quality Matters: Trauma Informed Practice in Ireland - Training Schedule

We are happy to announce that Trauma Informed Practice training is now available fully online through lectures and interactive multi-disciplinary workshops. Having been trialled and evaluated in this mode, the training has proven to be as successful and well-regarded as in-person delivery.

This trauma-informed care training programme for health, social care and community practitioners was created by the non-profit sector, for the non-profit sector. Delivered over a half-day lectures and two half-day online multi-disciplinary workshops, the training teaches those working at the front line to understand trauma and its impact on behaviours, as well as appropriate ways to respond to trauma reactions and skills to prevent triggering and retraumatisation. Online lectures are delivered by trauma-informed care expert Dr. Sharon Lambert, and online workshops are delivered by practice experts.

Trauma Informed Care in Ireland is a training and quality implementation programme for organisations committed to working in a trauma-informed way with all who use their services. Our vision is that all people who have survived trauma can access, and remain engaged with, services where they feel safe, supported and encouraged to heal and grow. We hope that individuals and communities traditionally most likely to disengage from services can stay engaged and feel safe, respected, empowered, trusted and welcomed. This training empowers individual practitioners to understand essential information in relation to trauma and practice key skills to prevent and respond effectively where people using services have trauma reactions or trauma-organised behaviours.

Training in Trauma Informed Practice interactive workshops will be available on following dates:

  • December 6th and 13th 2021 (9.15 – 13.00 each day)
  • January 14th and 21st 2022 (9.15 – 13.00 each day)
  • February 4th and 11th 2022 (9.15 – 13.00 each day)

Access to lectures will be available at least two weeks prior to the date of the workshops and must be completed prior to the workshops.
