‘The trainers were excellent at putting information across in an easy to understand way by giving examples and asking for input.’ 

The Transforming Trauma National Training Framework sets out 4 levels of training for different parts of the workforce. This training sits at the Informed Practice Level, which describes the baseline knowledge and skills required by everyone in the Scottish workforce. 

Health in Mind trainings are knowledge-based and give participants time to explore their understanding through discussion and reflection on their practice. 

Our trainers are experienced practitioners in the field of social care, mental health, support work and counselling.  Our training is aimed at workers in these or associated fields.
