This online course delivered in real time to a limited number of participants, will offer the essentials of a trauma informed response in the context of the current situation. For most people, COVID-19 will be associated with increased uncertainty, anxiety and stress. Stressful and frightening events can create threats to our sense of security, feelings of grief, and loss of power and control in our lives. As the UK gradually starts to come out of the lockdown, practitioners from all settings will be reconnecting with the children and young people that they work with. A priority at this time must be to try to help children make sense of what has happened in their lives over the past few months, and for professionals to be able to plan for easing of restrictions.
