Trauma Informed Practice
Camden is implementing a borough-wide approach to ensure that ‘Trauma Informed Practice’ underpins our work with vulnerable children and their families who have experienced trauma in their lives. This has been commissioned by the Youth Safety Task Force and the Educational Psychology Service have developed the approach in partnership with Camden Learning and CAMHS. Delivery is supported by the Primary Learning Support Service and specialist teachers from the Royal Free Hospital Children's School.
This will help agencies work together better to understand how adverse experiences have impacted on children’s development. The focus is to understand what children and young people communicate through their behaviour and help make positive changes in their environment and in the support they receive.
Further details on the programme and commitment for schools are attached below.
