We began running live training events in 2010 and since that time have delivered over 120 days, welcoming over 12,000 delegates. But we appreciate that not everyone can make it to the live training, perhaps because the dates or locations don’t work for you.

Our current offering of online courses include a number of live training days that we no longer run. However we are also developing online training that will better meet the needs of survivors and professionals who cannot attend live events, or those wishing to develop their skills further than the format of the live days allows.

We will continue to run live events during 2018 and beyond, but alongside this, and at times interweaving with it, we are also developing three streams of online training:

  • a year-long ‘Trauma-Informed Practice’ course
  • a ‘Survivors’ Survival Guide’
  • and a modular, pick-n-mix stream of recordings from previous live days.

How the online training works

Our online training is easy to use. Here is a short video showing the basics of how it works.


Online Training

Trauma and the Body: Dissociation and Somatisation

Trauma doesn’t just affect the mind and the emotions. It profoundly affects the brain and the body too. Often ‘the body remembers’ what the mind cannot.


DID and Dissociation: The Fundamentals

What is dissociation? Why does it occur? How does it manifest? When does it lead to a dissociative disorder? What are depersonalisation and derealisation? Are dissociative disorders for real? How do you support someone who suffers from trauma-related dissociation? How do you recover? What is it like to be dissociative?

Child Sexual Abuse: Hope for Healing

Child sexual abuse has been in the headlines constantly since the Jimmy Savile scandal broke in 2012. But why? Why is it such a big story? Why does it impact the victim so profoundly? What is the ‘transfer of responsibility’ in grooming? How many people are abused, by whom, and why? Is there hope for recovery?



Coming Soon

Working with Relational Trauma: Dealing with Disorganised Attachment

A training day for people who work with people who have been hurt by people. A day about our intrinsic value as human beings, and how our experiences of relationships shape us—for ill or for good.


Trauma, Dissociation and Recovery: Healing the Brain

This course takes complex neuroscience and makes it simple, clear, relevant and applicable. Find out about seven realms where trauma impacts the brain. Learn about the three phase treatment plan and the green, amber and red of the trauma traffic light.
