The programme focuses on both developing understanding of the theoretical principles of trauma-informed practice in education and its application to the educator’s specific role.

The programme examines the theoretical base of trauma- informed practice in an accessible and applicable way with attention to the stress response system, attachment trauma, mentalising and resiliency theories. The programme also introduces students to implementing trauma-informed practice in the educational context. Students are supported in developing a toolkit of resources to implement the approach in their specific role. The programme also explores students’critical thinking on the current debates about the implementation of trauma- informed practice in education settings and the impact of vicarious trauma on the educator.
