    Abstract

    Professionals, and wider society, are becoming increasingly aware of the prevalence of traumatic and adverse childhood experiences, and of the potentially enduring and detrimental impact of such experiences on emotional, psychological and physical health and wellbeing. As a result, there is increased policy and practice attention paid to identifying, understanding and addressing trauma and adversity among individuals. Importantly, this attention is not solely focused on trauma-specialist provision for individuals who are known to have experienced trauma, but also on ensuring that the entire workforce is trauma-informed, as outlined in the Transforming Psychological Trauma framework (NHS Education for Scotland, 2017).
