Quality Matters: Trauma Informed Practice in Ireland

Autumn Training dates 2022

This Trauma-informed Practice training programme for health, social care and community practitioners was created by the non-profit sector, for the non-profit sector. Our training is delivered over 2 modules. Module 1 consists of a half-day online lecture and Module 2 is delivered over two half-day online multi-disciplinary interactive workshops or in person over one full day.

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 Practice 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:

  • August 25th and September 1st (online from 9.10am to 1pm each day)
  • September 19th and 26th (online from 9.10am to 1pm each day)
  • October 14th and 21st (online from 9.10am to 1pm each day)

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