Trauma Informed Practice Training

New Website Pending…

Our new Trauma-Informed Argyll and Bute Training website is currently under development – this will include resources, a training calendar and links to everything trauma training related.

Following the success of our Pilot training programme in partnership with NHS Education for Scotland, we are continuing to build on our trauma responsive workforce as part of the National Trauma Training Plan.

Our overarching vision is to develop a trauma informed and responsive nation and workforce, that is: informed by people with lived experience, recognises the importance of wellbeing in the workforce, recognises where people are affected by trauma and adversity, responds in ways that prevent further harm, supports recovery and can address inequalities and improve life chances

We now have a dedicated Trauma Training Co-Ordinator Clare Williams who is currently completing a training needs analysis. If you feel your team could benefit from trauma training, please email or call Clare to arrange a meeting, 07585 548 725.

A note from Clare Williams – Trauma Training Co-ordinator

Hi, I’m Clare and I am the Local Authority Trauma Training Co-Ordiantor. My background is in Multisystemic Therapy, and I have a wealth of experience in working with children and families affected by trauma and delivering trauma-focussed interventions.

I know Argyll and Bute have already taken some huge strides towards being a Trauma Responsive workforce and the conversations I have already had with staff can attest to this commitment. 

My role will be to help take this to the next level for our whole children's workforce, whatever your role – to understand what you and your team need in order to become ever more trauma aware and responsive and help you achieve this. I will be developing and delivering multiagency training to target your team’s needs and supporting your service to achieve your Trauma Responsive goals beyond training.

Being new to Argyll and Bute I have already been struck by the warmth of your welcome and by your commitment to being trauma responsive practitioners and services.   I’m still getting to know the local authority structures, teams, localities and broader partnerships, so please do get in touch/say hello if you see me!

If you have any ideas, suggestions, reflections or feedback, please don’t hesitate to contact me on and I will happily set up a meeting.
