TIP Masterclasses

Trauma Informed Practice (TIP) Masterclasses are a series of focussed, practice based workshops for graduates of the full TIP programme who wish to deepen their practice. These masterclasses allow participants to refine the skills they developed in their initial TIP training and work with trainers and colleagues to consider how to apply TIP best practice in day to day work situations.

Trauma Informed Practice Under Pressure (TIP UP) Masterclass

The first TIP Masterclass workshop is called TIP UP and involves participants developing a nuanced understanding of their own nervous systems, and how they can support effective, positive co-regulation with service users, particularly in challenging situations. This masterclass was developed with psychotherapist and organisational development expert Derek McDonnell of Big Picture Consultancy, and commissioned by Novas. By participating in this workshop participants will develop a range of skills to become more trauma-informed in their practice, including to:

  • Increase awareness of your own internal stress reactions and how this impacts on your ability to create psychological safety for yourself and service users.
  • Develop techniques for creating psychological safety through self-investigation and self-settling.
  • Develop skills to become more present, calm and trauma-informed when faced with challenging situations at work.
  • Apply self-reflection and reaction techniques through case-studies and role plays relating to challenging conversations with clients and colleagues.
  • Learn about exciting new theoretical developments in psychology and trauma-informed practice, with a focus on the polyvagal theory, neuroception and co-regulation.

Training Approach

The training is highly interactive, with a primary focus on practical skills development for managing the self in challenging workplace situations. It involves self-reflection, interactive discussions, case studies and role play. Participants who find periods of introspection, quietness mindfulness etc. triggering or challenging may wish to have a conversation with the training coordinator, Yvonne Davis, in order to ascertain suitability of the workshop to them.
