  • Trauma-informed practice (TIP) courses

    Trauma-Informed Practice (or TIP) is a framework first developed several decades ago in the USA, in response to the growing recognition that the impact of trauma is not sufficiently acknowledged within services that often interact with traumatised people (including health, social care and criminal justice). 

    You can use trauma-informed practice priniciples to develop your professional skills in teaching and social work through courses at Sussex.

    We offer:

    • an online training module in trauma-informed practice
    • courses in Social Work and Care
    • courses in Childhood and Youth Studies.
