Bristol Health Partners’ Adverse Childhood Experiences Health Integration Team (HIT) has changed its name to the Adversity and Trauma HIT to better reflect the remit of its work, considering the impacts of adversity and trauma across the course of people’s lives.
The HIT has engaged with colleagues and stakeholders across the system to develop Shared Principles for Trauma Informed Practice and a Knowledge and Skills Framework. You can find these documents and additional learning resources online.
The Principles and Framework are intended to be used by all organisations across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire, as we aim to embed a system-wide trauma informed approach.
If you have recently arranged trauma training for any of your staff, or have plans to do so in the near future, we would appreciate your input. We also hope to provide some information and guidance for organisations who are planning to offer trauma/trauma informed training so that we have a consistent approach across BNSSG, which will hopefully benefit our residents and staff.
Thank you for supporting this work.
