Programs delivered by QuEST are recognised as legitimate professional development by the Department of Education and Queensland College of Teachers. As such, it is appropriate to apply for funding through your normal school professional development processes.
These programs target a deep understanding of how early trauma, abuse and neglect can impact the developing brain.
Our presenters Kellie and Rebecca have extensive experience in working with complex trauma cases. Both presenters have trained with the Child Trauma Academy in the USA and utilise evidence-based approaches to re-engage children and to build skills in teachers and school leaders alike. As school leaders, they have specialised in working with children who are disengaged and display extreme behaviours, many of whom have experienced trauma. Both have also been foster-carers for high-needs children, and have a wealth of experience to draw on.Click here for more information about this course
