Solihull Understanding Trauma Online Learning Course

The Safeguarding Board for Northern Ireland (SBNI) have commissioned a two year licence with the Solihull Approach to enable professionals across Northern Ireland to complete the online ‘Understanding Trauma’ course. This is a FREE course following on from the Solihull Understanding Attachment course and will be available from November 2019 until November 2021.

About the course

You will find this course extremely informative whether you work with children or adults. It is particularly effective if you have completed EITP Trauma Informed Practice Level One and Two training sessions and will build upon the knowledge and skills accrued through those courses.

Since this programme went live in November 2019, we have had over 400 professionals from across all sectors register and become active learners of the Solihull Understanding Trauma Online Course. This is proving to be an invaluable learning tool for staff.
