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 recently SASCA has only been available to organisations.

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

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

The SASCA course, accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health and the Royal College of Nursing, 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, feel more confident in handling first disclosures of abuse, 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

    • Knowledge about the impact of abuse on the brain and body (thoughts, emotions, behaviours)
    • Deeper awareness of how survivors of abuse experience themselves, others and the world
    • Skills to recognise and respond appropriately to trauma-related stress reactions
    • Knowledge to prevent retraumatisation of survivors in service settings
    • Trauma-informed approaches to communicate and work collaboratively and effectively with survivors – face-to-face, on the phone or in writing
    • Awareness of vicarious trauma and how to guard against it

PRE-COURSE REQUIREMENT: The only pre-course requirement for delegates is that they work in a professional capacity with people who suffered abuse in childhood and that they have openness to emotive material and a willingness to learn and practice new skills.

PLEASE NOTE: The Early Bird rate is limited to the first seven tickets sold.

If you are unable to attend this course but would like to receive information about future courses, please email us at training@napac.org.uk .
