Alex Timpson Attachment and Trauma Awareness in Schools Programme

This Programme worked with over 300 schools across 26 local authorities in England. Participating schools received training in attachment and trauma organised through the local virtual school or educational psychology service, often accompanied by follow-on training and networking opportunities.

The aim of the Programme was to explore the impact of the training by drawing on the perspectives of staff and young people. We employed a mixed methods approach, using online questionnaires, interviews with staff, focus groups of young people, and training observations.

Working papers, webinar recordings, and resources for the programme are below.
