Adverse Childhood Experiences and trauma-informed practice

Who's it for?

This training takes an organisation-wide approach for sport organisations that will have specific benefits for coaches engaging young people, but also managers, volunteers and those with a responsibility for safeguarding and workforce development. The training will be particularly useful for staff involved with projects covering: social inclusion; health, mental health and wellbeing; National Citizens Service (NCS); school partnerships.

Training Objectives

The training will explore how sustained trauma can have adverse effects on behaviours, emotions and lifelong opportunities and how the supportive relationships and environments that sport provides can prevent or even reverse the harm from trauma and build individual and community resilience.
