Key information and duty of care for applicants and delegates on the Diploma trainings to become a trauma informed practitioner
A great many delegates have told us that the practitioner training is life changing and has dramatically enriched their relationships with themselves, their friends and family. We ask you to note however, that this training is emotionally powerful and can be experienced at times as emotionally challenging. Please be aware of this before applying.
Due to our duty of care to applicants, on the application form we ask about traumatic life experiences. This is never from a judgemental position but to support. People who have experienced trauma and come out the other side through processing what happened to them in their lives in the presence of an emotionally available adult, tend to be superb practitioners as they are not afraid of a child’s emotional pain and know about empathy and the power of telling your story to someone who is trained to listen. In fact unless delegates have sufficiently addressed their own painful life experiences leading to personal awareness, insight and robustness, it is not possible to be truly emotionally available to the distress of others.
In conversation with applicants, together we can ascertain whether past trauma has been sufficiently processed so that the training doesn’t open up old wounds causing distress. We may ask that you seek support either prior to and/or during the course. On some occasions, we may decide to defer your application and/or remaining days of the course until such time that emotional support has been received. This really doesn’t happen very often, but is key for those people who just need more time to process their own traumas before addressing those of children and teenagers. We also ask you to let us know if you have had a trauma or traumatic loss after filling in your application form and before attending the course. Thank you for your attention. We look forward to receiving your application.
