Helping to create brighter futures  

Trauma Training & Resources for Child and Youth Care Professionals

Our Mission

To offer comprehensive guidance and support to organizations committed to protecting children from harm and promoting their well-being. By equipping participants with evidence-based strategies and practical skills, Safe to Grow helps to ensure that every child and care provider is safe, can build resilience, and is able to thrive.





Who this is for;

Understanding the effects of trauma is crucial for anyone working with children, as it helps to create a safe and supportive environment that promotes healing and recovery.

Trauma can have a profound impact on a child's emotional, psychological, and physical well-being, and without proper support, these effects can have a long-lasting impact on both the child and the carer.

Everyone deserves to know the feeling of safety

Understanding the impact of trauma on a child's development and behavior is crucial for their well-being.

Recovering From Trauma

A successful trauma program needs three elements; a strong foundation of understanding, practical, real-world strategies, and ongoing support.  One without the others will not create lasting change.

From a place of understanding

We translate complex neuroscience into easy-to-understand concepts and stories. This enables caregivers to approach often negative behaviour with much greater empathy and understanding.

Pain-based behaviour requires a different approach that can make a world of difference to the child in care.

Introducing the S.E.C.R.E.T

A practical, easy-to-follow formula to understand trauma and work towards recovery.

A step-by-step process that can be used by all caregivers working with traumatized children and youth.  This program should form a part of all organisations' fundamental training to minimize re-traumatization and ensure secure relationships can be created.

Encouraging growth

We know vicarious trauma is affecting far too many of our child and youth care workers.  

Left unaddressed organisations are losing quality caregivers without explanation.   We help them to recognise secondary trauma within themselves and give them the opportunity to work through it and build resilience.

Thank you! Information from a neuroscience base showed compassion and understanding for children and the adults who care for them. I recommend the course to my clients because I can see how helpful it is coming from a trauma-informed, ND-affirming approach.
