Understanding Childhood Trauma

Childhood trauma is everywhere. It is invisible but affects children and families deeply. It follows children to school, to work and in relationships. It can affect the personal, health, social and economic outcomes of children throughout their lives.

Yet few of our educators know anything about it. Other professionals may ignore it while parents and carers do not often receive appropriate, or any, information. Worse still, survivors of childhood trauma do not have access to information that may help them understand themselves, explain some aspects of their behaviour and perhaps facilitate more effective healing.

Child Trauma Consulting exists to provide this information. Find out about our online courses and workshops below.  Registration is free. All courses are priced in Australian dollars (you can pay in your local currency at check out).

I highly recommend this course. Having worked with SEN/SEMH pupils in the UK for over 15 years and undertaken many training courses, I believe that this course has the most relevance and importance to better understanding and appropriately supporting young people today.



Brilliant course…I would highly recommend this course.
