Trauma, particularly in early childhood, can have severe impact on a child throughout their life. It can manifest as behavioural issues, and have a severe effect on both their mental and physical health. When they grow older they may can be drawn into violence, criminal activity, and self harm, as well as being more likely to engage in health-harming behaviours. These issues can continue to have effect on the manner in which they interact with others throughout their life, including their own children, and they are more likely to become a victim of abuse, or a potential perpetrator, in their own relationships.
We often refer to these traumatic events Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE). Almost half of the adult population of England have had some form of adversity within their childhood or adolescence. These can include bereavement, neglect, violence, being witness to domestic abuse, sexual assault and substance use by parents and carers.
This training event will raise awareness of the issues relating to working with children and families where there has been some form of trauma. This is a joint enterprise between the Local Safeguarding Children Boar (LSCB), Public Health and partners from Sussex University

This session is aimed at supervisors. The date of 13 June is reserved for Operational Managers.
This one and a half day course will give attendees the opportunity to develop practical skills and strategies to build positive working relationships with fathers. They will hear about the wide ranging implications of meaningful engagement through the latest research and theories, and Q&A sessions with professionals with specialist knowledge/experience.
Practitioners will consider how a two-way engagement barrier between professionals and fathers can form and will learn how to overcome the challenges this presents. They will also explore why fathers can be hard to engage and the underlying reasons for their use of anger, aggression and non-engagement.
The additional half-day will ensure attendees have time to embed the learning into their practice by trying out techniques and strategies, then returning as a group to reflect on their success, as well as discuss challenges.
