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.
- Define abuse and trauma and gain awareness of how it affects mental, physical and social health over the life span
- Understand trauma-informed approaches to working effectively with adult survivors of all types of abuse
- Learn practical skills to respond appropriately to flashbacks, dissociation and other chronic stress reactions
- Recognise and guard against vicarious trauma
- Develop a self-care plan
SASCA is accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) and Royal College of Nursing (RCN).
