As part of the National Trauma Training Programme, a small number of volunteers from older adult care homes across Scotland took part in a short trial to explore how a peer support approach could help them share learning and reflections about embedding trauma-informed practice in their services.

This free interactive event hosted by the Improvement Service, the Scottish Government, the Scottish Social Services Council and NHS Education for Scotland is open to anyone in Scotland working at a local level to improve outcomes for older adults accessing social care, including the care at home workforce, who wish to learn more about the opportunities and challenges in embedding a trauma-informed approach.

The event will provide opportunities to:

  • Enhance understanding about the impact of trauma and the need for a trauma-informed approach within an older adult social care context;
  • Hear about learning from the trial, including both the opportunities and challenges identified by participants in developing trauma-informed practice in their services;
  • Take away learning about the importance of trauma-informed practice and to understand opportunities to engage with the National Trauma Training Programme
  • Hear about existing resources and support for implementation of a trauma-informed approach through the National Trauma Training Programme.

To register for the event, please complete this short form. An agenda with full programme and speaker details and a joining link for Teams will be shared ahead of the event.
