Childhood Trauma Workshops
Beech Lodge School, Maidenhead

Welcome to a series of four twilight Childhood Trauma Workshops.  These workshops will provide 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 will explore the theories behind ACEs and Developmental and Relational Trauma and offer strategies, interventions and action plans to support children using approaches implemented at Beech Lodge School.

All workshops will be held at Beech Lodge School, Maidenhead, Berkshire. Click here for address and directions. 

Each workshop is £50 (including VAT) per delegate and will run as after school twilight sessions (4pm-6:30pm).

The sessions will consist of informative presentations, research findings, excerpts, best practice examples and case studies, opportunity for Q&A, interactive group work and the chance to network with other professionals.

We recommend before attending Workshop 2, 3 and 4, it would be useful to attend Workshop 1 as a basic understanding of Developmental Trauma is desirable but not essential.
