Diploma in Trauma and Mental Health Informed Schools and Communities (Practitioner status)

The training provides delegates with key insights into the psychology and neuroscience of mental ill- health and challenging behaviour alongside vital tools and techniques in knowing how to respond to a child’s narrative of painful life events. So often this is enough to prevent years of suffering and the medicalising of their distress with psychiatric labels and medication. Delegates will also be trained to know when to seek the support of psychologist-led supervision, and when, due to limits of competence, to refer on. The course not only focuses on work with individual children but also on changing whole school cultures to be mentally healthy for all. So the curriculum covers interventions designed specifically to address teacher stress, teacher absence and poor staff retention. Delegates will also learn to use ‘Motional’ – our online tool for assessing, improving, and measuring change in emotional health and wellbeing.
