Online trauma awareness training package being developed

September 14, 2017 at 4:16 PM

*From the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse*

The Ministry for Vulnerable Children, Oranga Tamariki has partnered with Werry Workforce Whāraurau to develop a trauma awareness training package.

The training package includes three modules designed for caregivers and frontline practitioners within the children’s workforce.

The modules or online courses include:

  • Module 1: Childhood trauma: impact on development and behaviour
  • Module 2: Trauma-informed care for caregivers
  • Module 3: Trauma-informed care for the children’s workforce 

Each module takes between 1 to 2 hours to complete. The modules provide a foundation for understanding types of trauma, impacts of trauma, resilience, considerations for different cultures, ways to build resilience and safety, and how to care for yourself as a caregiver or professional.

The modules are still being piloted and may be revised in the future. They are currently available online at no cost. To access the modules, register with the Goodfellow website and follow the detailed directions on the Werry Workforce Whāraurau website.

For more information see the Ministry for Vulnerable Children, Oranga Tamariki news announcement.
