Understanding Trauma And The Impact On Young People training

Children who have experienced traumatic events in their past can have more emotional and mental health needs, as well as more behavioural difficulties than most children. Early life trauma impacts on their brain development. Understanding how this trauma impacts the development of the brain allows us to understand the resulting behaviours.

Stability, security and a good relationship can help children and young people to develop and mature emotionally and can repair some of the damage that has been done as well as be an integral part of the healing process.
