This program covers:
• An understanding of the importance of working with the systems around the child, and particularly the care team.

• Consideration of family systems and working effectively with these when there has been a history of trauma
• Apply practical approaches to mapping and engagement with the systems around the child
• Understanding how core psychotherapeutic and trauma-informed principles can be applied to our work with the system around the child
