Trauma is not limited to discrete events and is often complex in nature. Repeated relational harm that comes from experiences such as physical, emotional or sexual abuse, significant neglect, and family violence, can have a serious impact on the education and lives of children.
As an educator or someone whose work involves the support of children and young people who attend education settings, you have the potential to profoundly enhance the education and future lives of young people through adopting trauma-aware practice.
Complex trauma affects the physical, emotional and social development of children. In order to minimise harm, teachers and school leaders need to respond appropriately using trauma-informed practices and policies.
In this Trauma-Aware Education - Teaching Students Who Have Suffered Complex Trauma Microcredential at FutureLearn you’ll get an in-depth introduction to what complex trauma is and how it affects young people’s development. You’ll understand the neuroscience behind the behaviours presented by students who have experienced complex trauma. You’ll learn how to apply trauma-aware strategies and policies that will minimise the risk to students and school staff.
