New regulated qualification in Trauma Informed Care

February 6, 2018 Crossfields Institute

Crossfields Institute and the Novalis Trust are delighted to announce the launch of two Ofqual regulated qualifications in Trauma Informed Care

Crossfields Institute Level 4 Award in Trauma Informed Care
Crossfields Institute Level 4 Certificate in Trauma Informed Care
is now open for registrations.

Trauma theory is a fast developing area, and is emerging as a fundamental influence on best practice in the care of individuals within the care system. Despite increased research in this area, there is little in the way of regulated qualifications across the world and none in the UK.

This qualification is an integral part of the effort to expand understanding of the impact of trauma, and structure and deliver services in a way that are Trauma Responsive.

It is designed to equip learners with the theoretical and practical understanding of Trauma Informed Care. The qualification also supports organisations in ensuring their staff are offering the most appropriate, effective care to the individuals under their responsibility.
