Course outcome

After completing the course, delegates will have a comprehensive understanding of what PACE is and how to apply it to both those they work with and themselves. Delegates will then work on how to use the correct language through case studies and scenarios to allow them to put the techniques into practice. There will be a brief look at attachment trauma and how PACE works to help overcome the trauma experienced. If paired with our Attachment Trauma Training, this will be in a greater depth.
