'Trauma and young children – a caring approach' offers an opportunity for educators to access international, national and local expertise in working with children (0-8) with trauma and an opportunity to establish a shared understanding of best practice.

77 hours of face-to-face professional development has been developed, 15 self-paced learning modules including five hours of presentations from local, national and international presenters and a literature review.

'Trauma and Young Children – a caring approach' was funded by the Australian Government Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs.
