Thank you for delivering introduction to trauma informed practice sessions to Police Officers and staff members in Calderdale, West Yorkshire.
This training will help us develop our service to be more informed about trauma, adverse childhood experiences and resilience. This means we are better equipped to respond to people in communities, better at listening and understanding people, thinking more about people than process and looking out for trauma in ourselves and our colleagues.
As our partner agencies are all on a trauma informed journey, this will help us communicate across the partnership with a shared knowledge, understanding and language.
I have had a number of attendees approach me in the corridor after the training, commenting on how useful and impactive they found the training. I’m also aware that a number of people have felt empowered to speak about their own experiences of trauma in the sessions, for the first time.
