Trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACES) – like poverty, abuse, neglect or witnessing violence – are common.
In the absence of support, they can disrupt children’s healthy development and increase their risk for physical and mental health difficulties now and into the future.
We all have a shared responsibility to buffer the impact of trauma and adversity on children. This is why Emerging Minds has developed a suite of free online learning courses and resources to assist different practitioners – from students and volunteers through to specialist practitioners – to understand and support children and families who have experienced trauma.
Along with online courses you will also find a wide range of trauma-focused practice papers, podcasts, webinars, animations, practice demonstrations and more, to help support your work. These free resources have been created in collaboration with practitioners, academics, child and family services, child mental health experts, and family members with lived experience of trauma and adversity.
