Registration is Closed

Time & Location

Nov 27, 2020, 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM

About the Event

In this session Professor David Shemmings will cover the following:

- the key differences between ‘event-based’ trauma and ‘relationally-based’ trauma

- how this is likely to affect young people caught in gangs, online abuse and exploitation

- compassion fatigue and how can it be addressed?

David will present PowerPoint slides and show some film clips to link up-to-date research to your work with young Londoners. Those attending will be sent PDFs of the PowerPoints after the session.

Community of Practice – Champions – Contextual Safeguarding and Trauma-Informed Approaches

Following this course, a series of courses that PYL have delivered on trauma-informed approaches, and the training session on Contextual Safeguarding, there will be an opportunity to join a Community of Practice. We are linking these two approaches to safeguarding and supporting adolescents who have experienced abuse outside the family: they are emerging areas of research and practice and can offer us an innovative framework in which to work. This is coordinated by Safer London and Partnership for Young London and supported by the Contextual Safeguarding Network. The Community of Practice will focus on the next steps of utilising and embedding a Trauma-Informed Approach and a Contextual Safeguarding Approach in your work. We will explore the various challenges we face and how we are solving them; and what new learning and understanding we are gaining as we work with these approaches?
