Some recent feedback from staff from schools in Lancashire,

“Learning the theory behind trauma and the survival behaviours that come from trauma, helped me to find the words to help children verbalise their thoughts and feelings, reducing the need to behave in an aggressive way.”

” I learnt why I react as I do, this was helped by Helen and Catherine providing a safe, compassionate space where we all felt listened too.   It also helped listening to others reactions to traumatic events, even small events that you may not realise has caused a trauma response. This then helped me understand the reactions children have and why they might occur.”
