Trauma Associates bring CALM’s holistic approach to learning and practice development directly into the heart of your organisation – ensuring the whole of your organisation is shaped by a trauma-informed response.
CALM Trauma Associates develop in-depth knowledge of key conceptual, policy and practice issues enabling them to respond knowledgeably and sensitively to the needs of services, as well as concerns of colleagues and staff. An invaluable resource within any organisation, CALM Trauma Associates can not only train other organisational staff in the CALM Trauma Informed Practice Course, but can also support service design, best practice development and help establish an analytical focus on trauma-informed support throughout the many layers of any forward-thinking organisation.
*Please note: This programme enables the CALM Trauma Associate to deliver the CALM Trauma Informed Practice Course, NOT the CALM Core Theory Course.
The programme invites candidates to explore the key themes that underpin how CALM conceptualises trauma informed practice.
Each module has been structured around a specific topic, the approach to learning will include identified essential reading, online recorded PowerPoint presentations, work-based reflective practice and online tutorials.
Assessments include written essays, reports and reflective accounts. Throughout the assessment process, participants will be required to examine their organisational context in relation to each topic and develop an outcome-focused report of recommendations. This recommendations report can be utilised within their organisation in their future role as a CALM Trauma Ambassador.
