  • Who is this course for?

    This course builds on the learning from the Trauma 1 course. However, this is not a pre-requisite for this training if counsellors already have an understanding of trauma presentations and have some experience of working therapeutically with survivors. All participants must have appropriate supervision in place for the duration of the course. (This is a non-accredited programme that will deepen the understanding of trauma and its impact and develop further skills in working with people experiencing complex trauma presentations).
