Emotional Health


EdTRiM Practitioner Online Course
About this course

Looking after staff who have experienced potential trauma, is both morally justified, and if the experience is work-related, legally necessary. This innovative course is based on an original course, created by the military, to support people dealing with extremes of human emotion and experience. It has been adapted and developed by experts at www.dnatrim.com, in collaboration with experienced teaching and non-teaching staff, in order to manage the psychological consequences of potentially traumatic experiences within the education sector. EdTRiM is a credible, pragmatic course, based on science and trauma-informed practice. It offers common-sense strategies and trains and develops EdTRiM Practitioners to support colleagues who have experienced potentially traumatic events within the workplace. It provides a range of resources and an Incident Log Book for immediate use.
