A 1-day workshop on the basics of trauma.


This 1-day workshop is an introduction to trauma.

Trauma is usually invisible to the human eye. This workshop will help you to understand the internal landscape of those affected by trauma, the common impacts on a person’s brain and body, and what this means in terms of behaviour, social skills, self-regulation and more.
