Trauma Informed Practice in Ireland: Spring 2020 Training Schedule

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 online and full-day in-classroom sessions, the training teaches those working at the front line to understand trauma, it’s impact on behaviours, appropriate ways to respond to trauma reactions, and skills to prevent triggering and retraumatisation when working with people using our services. Online training is delivered by trauma-informed care expert Dr. Sharon Lambert, and in-classroom training is delivered by service-provision 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.
