Social workers have always been in the business of understanding and responding to experiences of hurt and abuse. In recent years these experiences have been increasingly discussed and understood as ‘trauma’, and ‘trauma informed’ practices are of increasing interest to a range of social work and social care services. This seminar will bring together expert practitioners and researchers at the forefront of these practice developments to discuss developments in policy, practice and research. There will be time to reflect on your own practice context and consider how we might better support people who have an experience of abuse and trauma.

The programme for the day will include input from Prof John Devaney, Kirsty Pate (Sector Manager for Groupwork Services, City of Edinburgh Council), Rania Hamad (Senior Practitioner and PhD Candidate) and Cheryl Lee Brown (Chief Executive, Midlothian Sure Start).
