How We Work

Children and War UK puts children first

We train responsible adults, such as teachers and community leaders, professionals and non-professionals to help large groups of children in their community as quickly as possible.

Our trainers share Children and War’s manuals, techniques and ways of teaching, and psychological tools to reach children and their parents.

Children and War’s proven approach is practical – for example, dealing with triggers, such as sounds, sights and smells that can bring back awful memories.

Children are introduced to ways of coping with worries and stress, to reduce long-term psychological trauma.

We train responsible adults, such as teachers and community leaders, professionals and non-professionals to help large groups of children in their community as quickly as possible.

In-person and online training

Training is available for individuals and small groups, and bespoke training for organisations, with groups of up to 15-20 adults. This can be in person or online via video link.

The training covers Children and War’s manuals and techniques, and can also include bereavement and grief training.

  • Teaching Recovery Techniques (TRT) – two-day course
  • TRT plus additional topics such as bereavement/grief training – three-day course

Cascading the training

Children and War UK also supports the people we train as they share the techniques with other responsible adults from their community.

As we train more people in Children and War UK’s recovery techniques, there will be ever greater potential positive impact on the long-term wellbeing of the children in their community.

Children and War UK funds essential research

  • into the effects of traumatic events on children
  • into ways of helping children cope

We continually assess the work that we do at the training workshops and with groups of children to ensure that our training and materials continue to be relevant and helpful.

With your help, we can help children recover from trauma.

We welcome volunteers!
