This workshop is aimed at creative practitioners and museum professionals who work in or are interested in working in a community justice or criminal justice setting.

This session will provide an introduction to the National Trauma Training Programme, will signpost attendees to further training opportunities and invite reflections on working with trauma in the arts.

The session will be led by Shumela Ahmed and Edel McGlanaghy. Shumela is Co-Founder and Managing Director of Resilience Learning Partnership. As a co-author of the National Trauma Training Plan, Shumela continues to target Resilience Learning Partnership’s core activities towards enhancing the learning and development of staff across local authority, 3rd and private sector organisations. Edel is a Clinical Psychologist and TPTIC (Transforming Psychological Trauma Implementation Coordinator) for Forth Valley with a remit to support the workforce to become more trauma informed. There will also be a discussion with members of a Recovery Cafe book club and author Lin Anderson about their collaborative relationship, which has been mutually inspiring.
