Description

NAPAC (the National Association for People Abused in Childhood) is a UK-wide charity offering support to adults who suffered any type of abuse in childhood. Responding to demand from around the country, we are excited to be able to offer a new specialist training course, Supporting Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse (SASCA), to individual professionals working with people who suffered any type of abuse in childhood. Until now the SASCA course has only been available to organisations. 

This one-day course, limited to 20 places, is aimed at any professionals who work directly with adult survivors, or those studying a relevant subject, to deepen their knowledge about the impact of abuse in adulthood and to feel more confident in managing disclosures from clients. 

NAPAC has trained NHS staff, including GPs, mental health professionals, safeguarding leads as well as social workers, police officers, prison and probation officers. We have received excellent feedback from these groups.

The SASCA course, accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, will enhance your professional development by offering you a greater understanding of how to work compassionately and effectively with survivors, so you can improve and broaden your competence, knowledge and skills and apply trauma-informed principles. 

Two experienced facilitators will share NAPAC’s knowledge of working with abuse survivors over the past two decades and address many of the issues that professionals encounter when engaging with individuals recovering from complex trauma and PTSD. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions, role play, and learn from the experience of other professionals in the room.
