This session will review what trauma actually is, and what this means for those experiencing it. It will also explore why it is key that key principles of trauma-informed approaches are required for all those interacting with and supporting autistic people and people with learning disabilities in daily life.
This webinar forms the first session in a new lunchtime webinar series running throughout June and July. Free to attendees, the webinars are part of Bild’s mission to deepen the health and social care sector’s understanding of trauma, and its impact on people with learning disabilities and autistic people.
The series will be co-hosted by Bild in partnership with the charity Respond, which provides specialist support to people with learning disabilities, autistic people, or both, who have experienced abuse, violence or trauma. The webinar will be facilitated by Dr Noelle Blackman, Chief Executive of Respond charity and Elly Chapple, Founder of #FlipTheNarrative.
