Overview

An introduction to trauma and to ACEs and their relationship with people who use drugs.

Aim

This training will introduce the causes and types of trauma and will enable participants to appropriately respond to disclosures of trauma.

Please Note

This course includes studies of people with lived-experience of trauma, in particular the survivors of childhood sexual abuse.  It also includes exploration of adverse childhood experiences, loss and bereavement.  We recognise that these experiences and themes can at times be challenging for participants and can cause us to reflect on our own experiences.  We aim to create a safe and supportive environment by offering two facilitators on the course to debrief should anything arise during the course.
