PDHPE Masterclasses

Our Masterclass series explores the latest health and physical education research. We offer 8 Masterclasses each year.

Masterclass 5 2023:

Many children and young people will experience a traumatic event by the age of 16. Many schools now adopt whole school trauma-informed approaches.

Understanding and recognising the potential impact of trauma on student learning in PDHPE is important.

Professor Martin will provide an overview of trauma-informed practice, including key principles, strategies, and common barriers and solutions for schools when implementing trauma-informed practice.

Explore practical ways to plan safe lessons for all, as well as support students who have experienced trauma.
