In this Module Plus, you’ll complete an assessment based on your experiences or context that can be applied in your own school setting or workplace. Students who have lived through very difficult or traumatic life circumstances may present challenging behaviour at school and need help to self-regulate emotions and manage their relationships. In this assessment module, you will plan how to support a child or student in this situation to minimise the frequency of crisis events and ensure they are managed appropriately.
On successful completion of the Module Plus, you’ll earn credit for a postgraduate unit (six credit points) that will be applied as advanced standing when you enrol in QUT’s Graduate Certificate in Education or Master of Education.

Apply your knowledge and understanding of trauma-informed practices to create an action plan for supporting a child or student who has experienced complex trauma.
