Welcome to NHS Forth Valley’s webpage for the Transforming Psychological Trauma implementation project.
As part of a NHS Education for Scotland National Agenda, this ambitious project aims to support the whole workforce in Forth Valley to become trauma informed.
Full information can be found on the NHS Education for Scotland website.
Levels of Training
We believe the whole workforce would benefit from being Trauma Informed, as explained in these videos:
Trauma Informed – If you work with people, this training is relevant for you! Training may be delivered in person (online), as an e-module or as a team discussion pack.
There are 3 other trauma practice levels, depending on how closely you work with people, and the type of service you provide. Full details can be found in the National Training Plan.
- Trauma Skilled practice level includes staff who have more direct and substantial contact with people who may have been affected by traumatic events, whether the trauma is known about or not. Training may be delivered in person (online), or as an e-module on Turas Learn (see here). Everyone can register for a free Turas Learn account here.
- Trauma Enhanced practice level includes staff who have more regular and intense contact with people who are known to be affected by traumatic events.
- Trauma Specialist practice level includes staff whose role involves delivering evidence based psychological therapies to individuals affected by traumatic events.
