Childhood Trauma Workshops
Beech Lodge School, Maidenhead

In the Academic Year of 2018-2019 we ran a series of four twilight Childhood Trauma Workshops.  These workshops provided educational professionals with an understanding of how childhood trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) impact social & emotional development leading to difficulties in the classroom.  We explored the theories behind ACEs and Developmental and Relational Trauma and offered strategies, interventions and action plans to support children using approaches implemented at Beech Lodge School.

All workshops were held at Beech Lodge School, Maidenhead, Berkshire.

The sessions included informative presentations, research findings, excerpts, best practice examples and case studies, as well as an opportunity for Q&As, interactive group work and the chance to network with other professionals. 

We had some wonderful feedback, here is an example of how one setting has changed their processes:

"After we attended your Workshop on Adverse Childhood Experiences and Trauma we have changed our home-visit form questions to include one about our children’s experiences in their first year.  This additional question has been really revealing and exposed some circumstances that often parents consider to be irrelevant.”
