Karen Hulls: What’s in the Box?
The What’s in the Box? Understanding Trauma & Positive Behaviour Support Strategies training program assists workers and carers in social & community services, schools, out of home care, health services, youth justice etc. to understand & meet the needs of children, young people & adults who have experienced complex trauma.
Workers and carers need a toolbox of ‘trauma-informed’ strategies which starts with knowledge of the impact of trauma on brain development & the psychobiology of trauma. Based on this understanding, workers & carers will recognise the need for well-developed skills in using a range of positive behaviour support strategies which avoid re-traumatisation and assist a child, young person or adult to heal from trauma, in their homes, schools and the community.
- Define complex trauma.
- Discuss the impact of trauma on brain development and memory.
- Understand the relationship between complex trauma in early childhood and behaviours and emotional responses.
- Explain trauma re-enactment and the importance of safe environments & relationships.
- Apply a range of positive behaviour support strategies suited to supporting children, young people and adults.
