Our Active Learning Groups is a learner/interested participant centred format with the elements of group support combined with group expertise:

  • It is a safe space for professionals to share experiences of working with complex trauma survivors, integrating an embodied way of working etc.

  • It helps with reducing isolation of professionals and is a way to connect with other members and those working with complex trauma

  • It fosters a collaborative supportive learning space for all

  • It helps to incorporate your current modality whilst including  a new perspective such as trauma informed practice & embodied re-processing, etc or more specific topics like working in schools, prisons, private settings, with young people, adults etc.

We look forward to welcoming you!
