Vulnerability, trauma and recovery

Level: 4 | Modules: 1 | Hours: 20

Toxic levels of stress can injure our brains, changing the way we think, feel and behave until we have recovered from the injuries. This can happen to anyone. This course enables learners to understand key issues in working with the significant minority of children and young people who are living with brain injuries from which they have not yet recovered. It also provides opportunities to practise and develop skills in working effectively with trauma.
