Organisation

The training is created by Leony Coppens, a self-employed clinical psychologist specialised in trauma treatment of children and juveniles. She is also responsible for the train-the-trainer session, with another of the books co-authors, Marthe Schneijderberg. Leony Coppens’ website (in Dutch), provides a listing of all professionals who are trained by her to deliver the workshop to schools/teachers.

Type of Organisation: For profit

Project description:

Teaching traumatised children is a two-day training workshop for school teams. The training is based upon the Dutch book Lesgeven aan getraumatiseerde kinderen by L. Coppens, M. Schneijderberg and C. van Kregten. The workshop is delivered in 8 modules and the aim is to train teachers and other school personnel to recognize trauma symptoms in children and help traumatised children to learn and strengthen their resilience. Working in a trauma-sensitive way with children within the schools protects them from radicalisation.

Deliverables:

Book (in Dutch): Coppens, L., Schneijderberg, M., van Kregten, C, Lesgeven aan getraumatiseerde kinderen: Een praktisch handbook voor het basisonderwijs, SWP, Amsterdam, 2016.

Training manual, PowerPoint sheets, handouts with information and exercises for the participants.
