There is a growing body of evidence highlighting the negative impacts of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in adulthood – these will apply to a significant proportion of your clients/patients.

The SASCA (Supporting Adult Survivors of Child Abuse) training workshop aims to increase awareness of and deepen knowledge about the impacts of all types of child abuse later in life and best-practice in using a trauma-informed approach when engaging with adult abuse survivors.

The workshop is suitable for counsellors, GPs, nurses, safeguarding professionals, police officers, prison/probation officers and other professionals working with – or likely to come into contact with – adult abuse survivors.

You will gain:

• deeper knowledge/awareness of different types of child abuse and their impacts in adulthood
• best practice in inviting, listening to and responding to disclosures
• best practice in responding to flashbacks, dissociation and other stress reactions
• knowledge of appropriate approaches to safeguarding following disclosure
• practical skills in using Trauma-informed care principles
• practical skills in recognising and guarding against vicarious trauma

SASCA is accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) and Royal College of Nursing (RCN).
