During this seminar Mandy Davis, the Director of Trauma Informed Oregon will share some of the exemplar work that has taken place across the state of Oregon within courtrooms, the homelessness sector, education settings, the care sector and many more to demonstrate how a state based approach has enabled a consistency of approach in creating trauma informed physical spaces across services.


This seminar will be an opportunity for us to learn from the evidence base of international models of practice and to provide a space for creative thinking and share some of the developments across our services in Northern Ireland to date.
