Helping young people in our current climate is going to require additional tools and knowledge. In this training we will dive into the world of complex needs, the behaviours around them and the trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's) that lie beneath them. We will explore techniques and strategies that will equip us to help increase resilience and promote self-efficacy with the young people we work with.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify positive approaches and effective strategies in working with trauma and complex needs with Young People
  • Develop tools in supporting Young People with complex needs
  • Gain a greater understanding in adolescent behaviour and the effects of trauma
