Professional learning with the Berry Street Institute in April and June of 2018 provided 30 community members and professionals opportunity to better understand and cater for trauma-affected children and families.
The expert training was provided over four days. Attendees were provided with a suite of resources to be used across a number of scenarios. Participants have since reported the training has influenced their personal practice when working with children, youth and adults.
This initiative was preceded by the Maryborough Education Centre when they highlighted the need for educators to understand the impact of trauma on children and as such led the way with providing training to over 170 Educators throughout 2017.
This kind of training aligns to the go Goldfields objectives to build capacity in our community toachieve our community-driven aspirations for child health and family safety.
