This conference focuses on a practical guide to developing trauma informed practice in adult safeguarding. An awareness of trauma and trauma informed practice can support people to feel safe, prevent re-traumatisation and deliver a strengths based approach to providing care, aiding recovery and identifying ongoing support. The conference will identify how individuals, services and organisations can deliver trauma informed culture and safeguarding practice.
Through national developments and practical case studies the conference will provide you with an essential guide to delivering trauma informed adult safeguarding in your service.
Now, more than ever, we need to ensure we engage in trauma-informed practice; we need to recognise what people have been through and not see safeguarding incidents as isolated problems, because that doesn’t help individuals or communities move forward. Trauma-informed practice helps us understand the necessity of working with others to address fundamental issues and bring about healing, restoration and change. This principle lies at the heart of our safeguarding practice, and it applies to every professional…” It is also within our gift to help create trauma-informed environments, so that staff feel safe to practise trauma-informed care, and people feel safe to share their experiences.
Hilary Garratt, the Deputy Chief Nursing Officer Safeguarding Annual Report NHS England 2022
This year we’ve seen a sharp increase in reports of domestic violence, serious violence, and we have seen exploitation in many other forms, including online grooming, scams, frauds, adult abuse, family poverty, mental health issues, and all the consequences that those things bring for families and communities. Evidence tells us that adverse experience, especially in childhood, is a form of trauma. If it’s not recognised and dealt with, it can often lead to the perpetuation of vulnerabilities, which can often lead to exploitation, violent behaviour, and abuse What we’ve learned this year is that now, more than ever, we need to ensure we engage in trauma-informed practice.
