This animation was developed by NHS Education for Scotland, in partnership with the Scottish Government. It is designed to be relevant to all workers within the Scottish workforce who work with children and young people. It aims to support staff to understand the impact of trauma and to know how to adapt the way they work to make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people affected by trauma.
It is in line with the Scottish Government priorities for supporting the well-being of all children through Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC) gov.scot/policies/girfec/ As with all children and young people contexts it is important to utilise multi-agency child protection procedures where required. gov.scot/publications/national-guidance-child-protection-scotland/
