Trauma-informed working

Professional development materials from the Trauma-Informed Reading Conference (2020)

To introduce the conference, the One Reading Children and Young People’s Partnership commissioned Real Time to film a video highlighting Reading’s trauma-informed journey so far. Real Time captured the perspectives of families as well as professionals from health, the police, schools and Brighter Futures for Children. Watch the video here.
