Community resilience and toxic stress
working with trauma across the lifespan

Level: 3 | Modules: 1 | Hours: 10

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 people who are living with brain injuries from which they have not yet recovered. It also provides opportunities to develop skills in working effectively with trauma in the community setting. Trauma-informed practice has increasingly been recognised as important in our public services as understanding of current research evidence grows. And at a time when the whole population is living with issues of toxic stress and severe anxiety trauma-informed practice becomes essential for everyone in any sort of public service.

Target audience: Public services workforce
