Staf is delighted to be one of the six partnership organisations taking part in a More Than My Trauma webinar series. 

What is More Than My Trauma?

As a country we have become increasingly aware of the impact of adversity and trauma on our children, young people and families.

Adversity and trauma can deeply affect individuals, families, groups and communities, lessening life chances and losing the vital contributions from everyone that we need to thrive as a nation.

We believe that everyone can recover from adversity and trauma with the right support and a focus on strengths and capabilities.

That’s why we’re delighted that Scotland will host this unique webinar series – More Than My Trauma is an opportunity to bring everyone with an understanding of adversity together to explore how we promote and support recovery from trauma.

This exciting series of 6 webinars will drive enduring organisational change in Scotland towards the development of truly trauma-responsive services for our children and young people.

What will happen in the webinar series?

Booking will give you access to all six More Than My Trauma sessions.

Each of our first five is led by a different Scottish organisation, focusing on a select area of their expertise.

Dr Bruce Perry will join us for the final session, exploring a topic chosen by you.

We are delighted that Dr Bruce Perry is participating. He is recognised across the world as a leading expert on trauma and supporting recovery.

The webinars will also focus on how to develop and implement trauma informed leadership through trust, compassion and positive relationships. By promoting an understanding of the uniqueness of individual qualities and experiences of colleagues, managers and senior leaders, delegates will learn how to be trauma informed leaders within their own teams, organisations and sectors.

We are also developing ways to ensure the meaningful participation of children and young people at the conference, including using the latest technology to make the conference as inclusive as possible.
