Event description

Description

NAPAC (the National Association for People Abused in Childhood) is a UK-wide charity offering support to adults who suffered any type of abuse in childhood.

Responding to demand from around the country, we are excited to be able to offer a new specialist training course, Supporting Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse (SASCA), to individual professionals working with people who suffered abuse in childhood. Until now SASCA has only been available to organisations.

This one-day course, limited to 20 places, is aimed at counsellors and therapists and other professionals who are working directly with adult survivors, or those studying a relevant subject, to deepen their knowledge about the impact of abuse in adulthood and to feel more confident in managing disclosures from clients.

NAPAC has trained NHS staff, mental health professionals, social workers, safeguarding officers, police officers and prison and probation officers. We have received excellent feedback from these groups.

The SASCA course, accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, will enhance your professional development by offering you a greater understanding of how to work compassionately and effectively with survivors, so you can improve and broaden your competence, knowledge and skills and apply trauma-informed principles.

Two experienced facilitators will share NAPAC’s knowledge of working with abuse survivors over the past two decades and address many of the issues that professionals encounter when engaging with individuals recovering from complex PTSD. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions, role play, and learn from the experience of other professionals in the room.

WHAT YOU WILL GAIN

  • Deeper knowledge and awareness of the different types of child abuse and their broad impact in adulthood
  • Best practice in inviting, listening or responding to disclosure
  • Best practice in responding to flashbacks, dissociation and other stress reactions
  • Best approach to safeguarding following disclosure
  • Trauma-informed care principles
  • Recognising and guarding against vicarious trauma

The only pre-course requirement for delegates is that they have openness to emotive material and a willingness to learn and practice new skills.
