NES CAMHS Trauma Training

NES offers a range of training opportunities for staff to develop their skills in relation to trauma presentations in children and young people. These include:


Trauma Focused CBT (TF-CBT)

  • This is a skills focussed training offered to experienced CAMHS clinicians within a minimum of Diploma level CBT qualification with supervised practice. The aim of this training is to develop the knowledge and skills to deliver Trauma Focussed CBT for children in young people attending CAMHS with trauma presentations.   
  • NES offers a 2+1 day TF-CBT training model with attendees invited to attend the follow up training date approximately 3-4 months after the initial training days.
  • Training comprises a blended learning approach, with attendees completing the online trauma module in advance of the 2-day face-to-face training.  An assessed formulation task is completed between the initial training and the follow-up training day.  Successful completion of all components of the training is required click here.


Trauma Skilled Practice in CAMHS

This two-part face-to-face training is delivered to CAMHS clinicians over 2 separate days.  Day 1 offers an introduction to trauma, its developmental impact and presentations, how it can be integrated into formulations and how services can be trauma informed.  Day 2 follows on from this, introducing opportunities for further consideration of skills necessary for psychoeducation about trauma and skills practice of safety and stabilisation strategies. 

Enquiries about this training should be directed to CAMHS Learning Co-ordinators in the first instance.
