Sowing Seeds: Trauma informed practice for anyone working with children and young people
This animation was developed by NHS Education for Scotland, in partnership with the Scottish Government. It is designed to be relevant to all workers within the Scottish workforce who work with children and young people. It aims to support staff to understand the impact of trauma and to know how to adapt the way they work to make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people affected by trauma.
Trauma Training Programme extended
Advanced training for frontline workers to recognise and respond to the signs and impacts of trauma in childhood will be rolled out in three pilot areas.
The National Trauma Training Programme gives frontline workers – such as police officers, teachers and health visitors - a better understanding of the needs of children and adults who have been affected by traumatic experiences. Already 3,000 frontline workers have been trained and at least 5,000 will have been trained by March 2021.
Three councils - Glasgow, Midlothian and Argyll and Bute - will now share £120,000 of Scottish Government funding to develop bespoke training plans for the programme.
