Teachers and school workers across Essex will receive training to spot signs of emotional trauma in children.
Kids Inspire aims to provide training to frontline professionals working with children and young people, helping them better understand trauma informed practice.
The children society’s Essex manager, Kerry Clancy-Horner MBE, lent her support to the scheme which will help school staff spot the signs of emotional trauma and give them the tools to intervene.
She said: “There is limited trauma support services, Kids Inspire have shown that they have the experience, knowledge and training to fill the gap.”
Training was delivered by Kids Inspire clinical director Sue Bell, and clinicial impact Manager Dimitra Theodoropoulou who both thanked teachers for attending the classes after school.
