Training and Coaching
We provide training and coaching in trauma informed-care and child safe principles for practitioners in the Human Service Sector.
Working with children, young people and families can be complex, time consuming and challenging. It is imperative that practitioners are up to date with current research and best practice, and that opportunities are provided to not only expand their knowledge base, but to develop their skills to be able to work more effectively with clients.
Training helps to build the knowledge base and introduce new concepts and approaches to practice. Coaching helps maintain enthusiasm from training and provides practitioners with the opportunity to deepen understanding of new concepts, problem solve any barriers to effective implementation, increase their confidence and further develop skills.
Our training workshops are designed to be interactive and use real world examples and case studies to help trainees understand key concepts in practice. We have developed a suite of coaching methods to suit the needs of frontline practitioners, team leaders and managers. Methods include interactive video conferences, online forums, email and phone support.
We work with schools, childcare centres, residential care providers and other youth-serving organisations. Contact us today to find out about a customised training and coaching option for your organisation.

THE COACHING MODEL
Coaching is designed to be intensive and time-limited to build your organisational capacity to incorporate and sustain new approaches to practice.
Coaching is integral to ensure that new knowledge is applied in practice, therefore all our training packages include a coaching component. Ongoing coaching helps to build organisational congruence so that all staff in the organisation have a common language and approach. Coaching also helps to build a learning culture within an organisation and will affect greater change for practitioners and ultimately for your clients.
We can provide training and coaching on a range of topics including:
Child Safe Organisations
Identifying and Responding to Harm
Responding to Sexualised Behaviour in Children and Young People
Relational Practice in Child Safe Organisations
