Understanding trauma, its impact and how we can best respond in the Covid-19 pandemic

Event Date: Available to download

The second of a series of four webinars run by Dr Tina Rae.


A 90 minute recorded webinar delivered by Dr Tina Rae.

A recent survey undertaken by the charity Young Minds in March 2020 revealed that the current coronavirus pandemic is having a profound effect on young people with existing mental health conditions. Although they understood the need for the measures taken in response to the virus, the report says, this did not lessen the impact. Many of those who took part in the survey reported increased anxiety, problems with sleep, panic attacks or more frequent urges to self-harm.

The webinar will look at the following:

  • Defining developmental trauma and implications for well-being and learning
  • Articulating the trauma of this pandemic and specific impact on children’s well-being including those with SEN
  • Trauma informed approaches in the classroom that we know to work
  • Trauma recovery strategies – get moving, reject isolation, stress management, self-regulate the nervous system via grounding and Mindful techniques, creating the little box of calm.
