Club Welfare Officers across Merseyside can now book onto a selection of online workshops focusing on Adverse Childhood Experiences and how sports organisations can implement trauma-informed policies and practices; all delivered by Liverpool County FA and Healthy Stadia.
We are facilitating a two-hour online training course that provide sports organisations with new insights into the profound effects of trauma, the prevalence of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and how participation in sport and physical activity can foster resilience and help people heal, recover and improve their social outcomes and long-term physical and mental health.
Who’s it for?
This training takes a club-wide approach that will have specific benefits for coaches engaging young people, but also managers, volunteers and those with a responsibility for safeguarding and workforce development. The training will be particularly useful for staff involved with projects covering: social inclusion; health, mental health and wellbeing; National Citizens Service (NCS); school partnerships.
The training will explore how sustained trauma can have adverse effects on behaviours, emotions and lifelong opportunities and how the supportive relationships and environments that sport provides can prevent or even reverse the harm from trauma and build individual and community resilience.
